UHS: Exam Block Clarification

Good afternoon,

We just wanted everyone to know and realize that attendance is required on exam days. Classes that may have had final projects should be using those days to engage in course reflection, presentations, student feedback forms, review of classes for next year, etc. The only exceptions are those approved at the office; there are only a couple of classes for which attendance is exempted. 
If a student needs to reschedule an exam, that is supposed to run through Mr. Bertrand or me - not arranged individually. For example, a student should not be telling a history teacher that he or she cannot attend the history final because the student will be in science.
This message has been shared with students and families alike.
Thanks for your cooperation!
Mr. Rubin
