Test sessions for the ACT will be based on English teacher.

Science and US History tests will be given during the students US History class time.

Your student will be receiving login information from their English teacher to complete the ACT non-test portions before their test date. This is the student’s opportunity to select colleges to receive their scores and complete personal information. If students do not complete this portion before their test date, sending scores will require a fee.

Please do not schedule appointments on these dates if possible!

April 7 — all virtual students

April 8 — students in Kevin McDonald and Regan Killackey English classes

April 13 — students in Debbie Reichert and Linsey Warthen English classes

Due to the length of the ACT with writing, testing will start at 8:00am each day. All testing students will take second lunch.

SENIORS 2021

 

‘It’s time to order diplomas! Unless you advise the counseling office otherwise, your name will appear as it does in Infinite Campus. Please go look at it in Infinite Campus NOW. If your name looks fine as it is shown, verify it’s correct on the form. If it’s different, you need to make corrections on the form. (Note: Middle names are not shown in Infinite Campus, so it you want that included, you must make a correction on the form).

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSerI54lWmkz8cMkCxchttY9UD1XyLELipyPj7-ZTFlPXdWfrw/viewform

Differences might include things like spacing, dashes, apostrophes, or titles like ‘Jr.’ or ‘III’ etc. that aren’t included, or possibly even spelling. If you have not made a correction by April 1, 2021, I will assume you are fine with it appearing as it does in Infinite Campus.

Please note that your legal name must appear on your diploma, but if you regularly go by your middle name or a nickname, you will be able to request that it be read during the graduation ceremony at a later date.
