Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Kelly,
We are almost to Thanksgiving break and then a few short weeks until Christmas – “hang in there!”. Because the semester ends on Wednesday, Dec. 20, we will have to follow a different exam schedule than usual.
December Exam Information
Thursday, December 14 (Blue day) & Friday, December 15 (Gold day)
Exams in English, History, Foreign Language, Electives
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WILL BE CONSIDERED REGULAR SCHOOL DAYS; STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO BE IN ALL CLASSES, EVEN IF A STUDENT HAS EXEMPTED AN EXAM IN THAT CLASS. THIS INCLUDES RESEARCH, PE, TEACHER ASSISTANT, ETC.
Monday, December 18 (Blue day) & Tuesday, December 19 (Gold day)
Exams in Math, Science, Theology
MONDAY AND TUESDAY, STUDENTS WILL ONLY BE EXPECTED TO ATTEND THE CLASSES IN WHICH THEY HAVE EXAMS.
The Port Arthur bus will run at the normal afternoon time. If students need to stay at school while they are not taking an exam Monday or Tuesday, they may wait quietly in the Café.
In order to complete grades and mail report cards on Wednesday December 20, make-up exams will only be allowed in cases of illness and will need to be completed by Tuesday, December 19. Exams missed on Tuesday will result in an ‘I’ on the report card and require the exam to be made up in January.
FYI – From a recent KFDM news story; “The Beaumont City Council recently renewed the city’s juvenile curfew. That curfew is 11 p.m. – 6 a.m. on week nights and midnight to 6 a.m. on weekends. BPD officer Haley Morrow says the goal of the curfew is not only to keep children from committing crimes, but also to prevent them from being victims of them.”
TAPPS Fan App – TAPPS has developed a free app for its parents and students called “TAPPS FAN APP”. It includes information about championship events, purchasing tickets, play-off brackets, live streaming championship events and other information.
Friday, November, 17 is a 12:30 p.m. dismissal.
May you have a most blessed Thanksgiving,
Roger S. Bemis
