WSFCS does have an exam exemption policy that allows students to be exempt from any teacher-made exams.  The exam exemption policy does NOT apply to EOCs.  All students are required to take any EOC assessment (in person), regardless of overall average or absences.

 

The exam exemption policy allows a student to be exempt from his/her teacher-made exam provided the student has:

  • An overall average in the class of A with 5 or fewer absences from the class.
  • An overall average in the class of B with 3 or fewer absences from the class.
  • An overall average in the class of C with 0 absences from the class.
  • A student is not required to take the exam exemption, meaning you can choose to still take the exam even if you qualify for the exemption.

 

  • SENIORS (#1): The Senior Cookout on May 11 will be catered by Zaxby’s.  The meal will be chicken tenders, coleslaw, chips, cookie, and bottled water.  There is no charge for the meal.

 

  • SENIORS (#2): After visiting Deaton-Thompson Stadium last week and seeing the seating capacity, we are able to offer Seniors more than 10 tickets for graduation.  Please email Mr. Hearl ASAP (jdhearl@wsfcs.k12.nc.us) if you need more than 10 tickets for your family for graduation.  Please indicate how many additional tickets you will need in your email.  Graduation tickets will be distributed to students at graduation practice on May 11.

 

  • SENIORS (#3): We will begin posting our Senior Spotlights on the website and Twitter page this week.  We still have several Seniors that have not completed the Google Form.  Please take five minutes and complete the form ASAP.  Seniors not completing the form will not be featured in this section.  Here is the link to the Senior Spotlight form.

 

  • ALL STUDENTS: As we move closer to the end of the school year, here are some announcements about textbook, Chromebook, hot spot, calculator, lab kit, etc. return.
    • All returns need to be brought to the 2nd floor in Ardmore Hall.
    • SENIORS need to drop off items on May 7 from 8 AM – 3 PM. Please ask if you still owe anything when you drop off your items.  You must be cleared of all debt before participating graduation.
    • 9th, 10th, and 11th Grade Students can start dropping off college textbooks after the course has ended. All other items will need to be returned after your high school exams.  Items can be returned from 8 AM – 3 PM in Ardmore.  All items need to be returned by May 25.
