Q1 GRADING TIMELINE
Quarter 1 ends on Thursday, October 15. Click HERE to see a detailed timeline for the remainder of Q1. Please note: In the quarter scheduling model, one quarter is equivalent to one semester’s worth of work. When Quarter 1 grades are transcripted, they will be labeled as “Semester 1” and when Quarter 2 grades are transcripted they will be labeled as “Semester 2.”

Q1 FINALS SCHEDULE
Finals for Q1 classes will be held Wednesday, October 14, and Thursday, October 15. There is no school on Friday, October 16. See our School Calendar HERE for specific times for each final.

Q2 START DATE
Quarter 2 will start on Wednesday, October 21. Because this is a short week, Wednesday will not be asynchronous and instead we will follow our M/T/Th/F bell schedule.

FALL AP STUDENTS: REGISTER AND PAY FOR EXAMS BY OCTOBER 28
