Changes to the Exam Schedule
I hope everyone enjoyed the snow last week and stayed safe in the storm. Because of the winter weather, we are making a slight adjustment to the exam schedule for this coming week. Tomorrow, Monday, December 17 will be a normal student day. This will be the final instructional day for all students and we will also administer teacher-made exams on this day. State exams will begin on Tuesday, December 18. We will administer first period exams on Tuesday, second period exams on Wednesday, third period exams on Thursday, and fourth period exams on Friday. Students, please be sure your chromebooks are fully charged this week for any online exams you will be taking. A detailed exam schedule can be found on our website. If you have any questions about the exam schedule, do not hesitate to call or email me.
The school district has approved some changes to the calendar due to the loss of days from the hurricane earlier in the semester and the snow last week. The following days in the spring semester will now be student days: January 7, February 8, March 18, April 22, and May 23. Once again, please note that the start of the spring semester will now be Monday, January 7. The updated calendar can be found on the Yadkin County Schools website.

The Forbush Winter Concert has been moved to tomorrow night, Monday, December 17, beginning at 6pm. Doors will open at 5:30pm and admission is only $5. Come on out and support the Forbush Chorus!
