Final Exam Guidelines
Somonauk High School strongly discourages pre-planned absences during exams. Parents requesting any absence including extended absences during final exam days must submit their request IN WRITING to the school principal. If the requested absence is approved, the student must schedule the time and date of the makeup test prior to the absence. He/she should do this by speaking with his/her teacher.
Make-up exams will only occur after the regularly scheduled exams, NO early exams will be given.
Due to the serious nature of final exams, students are required to be on time for exams.
ALL classes, including Physical Education, Art, and Music, will have Final Exams and meet on the scheduled exam day.
Students are expected to take ALL exams during their scheduled time. If a student is ill on the day of the exam parents MUST contact the office to report the absence and contact the teachers to schedule make-up exams.
Students need to stay in their classrooms for the entire exam period, even if they finish early. Students should bring other material to study to use their time wisely.
