Snow Day/Late Start Update

Due to the late start, we will not have class on Thursday (12/15).

The test has been moved to Friday (12/16). 

The test will likely take an entire hour to complete, which means that most students will not be finished with class time alone on Friday (assembly schedule that day). There are several options available to get more time on your test:
- come in before school on Thursday or Friday
- come in during lunch (bring your lunch to class and eat it as you work) on Thursday or Friday
- come in after school on Thursday or Friday
- finish the test on January 3rd when we come back from break
