Season's Greetings!

I hope this newsletter finds you well and anticipating the upcoming holiday season! As you know, the first semester of the school year will end on December 20, 2018. In preparation for final examinations, I want to let you know that our schedule will be different on December 18th, 19th, and 20th. All classes, with the exception of 5th hour, will meet for a reduced amount of time, approximately 45 minutes, on December 18. This is to allow extended time for 5th hour classes which will be giving a final that day. Final Examinations for 1st, 3rd, and 7th periods will be administered on Wednesday, December 19, 2018. Examinations for 2nd, 4th, and 6th periods will be administered on Thursday, December 20, 2018. On these days, the exam periods are 1 hour and 45 minutes in length. Make-up examinations will be administered by mutual agreement and arrangement with classroom teachers. There is no scheduled make-up time during the final examination schedule. Winter break for students is December 21, 2018 through January 2, 2019. The second semester will begin on January 3, 2019.

A study session designed for the purpose of helping our students prepare for their final examinations will be offered again this year! Faculty members representing the core content areas (Math, Science, Social Science, and English) and several teachers in elective areas will be available to help your child prepare during this time. The study session will be held in the Washburn Rural High School Cafeteria, and pizza will be provided for both students and teachers. Finals Study Night will be on Monday, December 17, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 PM. We strongly encourage you to help your child take advantage of this very important opportunity!

On behalf of the staff at WRHS, I would like to wish all of our extended Junior Blue Family a relaxing and memorable holiday break!

Best Regards,

Ed Raines
