The purpose of this communication is to share that the midterm exams scheduled for Kennett High School students the week of January 25th have been cancelled. Historically, midterms have counted for 10% of a student’s overall grade for year long classes; however, since they are cancelled, that 10% will be redistributed among the 4 marking periods. For semester courses, there will be no final exam, and each marking period will now count for 50% of a student’s grade.
Not having midterms prioritizes instructional time for our students and will allow us to operate on a normal schedule for the week of January 25th. However, please note that on Tuesday, January 26th, we will administer the PSATs to all junior and sophomores who opted to take the test. All students not participating in the PSAT on the 26th will access their learning asynchronously.
The updated schedule for the week of January 25th has been attached to this email.
If you have any questions about this change, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.
Principal, Kennett High School
