NN Schools Cancels Exams, Adjusts High School Schedule

Posted: January 18, 2018

With the additional snowfall this week, students in Newport News Public Schools have missed seven days of school due to weather and road conditions. To address the missed instructional time, Newport News Public Schools has omitted exams and made additional adjustments to the school calendar:

  • All scheduled exams for high school courses are canceled. The semester grades for high school students and middle school students enrolled in these courses will be calculated using first marking period and second marking period grades.

  • Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, January 23, 24 and 25, will be full school days for all high school students; the dates were originally exam half-days for high school students.

  • As previously announced, Monday, January 29, will be a regular school day for all students. The date was originally a Professional Development Day for staff. Friday, January 26, will remain a teacher workday; students do not report to school.

  • State mandated Standards of Learning (SOL) tests scheduled to be given to middle and high school students in January will be administered on an amended schedule. Students and families will receive the adjusted SOL test schedules from their schools.
