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 18, 2020. Winter break for students is December 19, 2020 through January 4, 2021. The second semester will begin on January 5, 2021.
As you have previously read, we will not be giving cumulative final examinations this semester in an effort to reduce student stress and anxiety. Instead, students will be given standard unit or end-of-chapter tests that can be administered in the regular 48-minute class period. This does not apply to courses offered through Washburn University that are being taken for credit by students. As such, no final examination schedule will be developed, and teachers will communicate directly with students as to when the last test will be given – just as they normally would with any test during the school year.
On behalf of the staff at WRHS, I would like to wish all of our extended Junior Blue Family a safe and memorable holiday break!
