Dear Students and Parents:

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Hampton Bays High School, I would like to wish you all a happy and healthy 2018.  The reason for this correspondence is to inform you about our January midterm and Regents schedule.  Hampton Bays High School will be following a mid-term/New York State Regents exam schedule from Monday, January 22nd through Thursday, January 25th.

Please review the enclosed schedule carefully to determine when your child must attend school for the purpose of testing, as regular classes will not be in session during the four days listed above.  If you have any questions regarding examinations or potential conflicts, you may contact your child’s teachers or guidance counselor.

Buses will operate as follows:

• Regular a.m. pick up for arrival by 7:30 a.m.
• 10:15 a.m. take home/11:15 a.m. pick-up for afternoon exams
• 11:15 a.m. take home run
• 2:15 p.m. take home run
• 3:15 p.m. late bus

Please note that our cafeteria will not be serving food during assessment days.  Therefore, please remind your child to eat a good meal before arriving at the high school for exams or review sessions.

All BOCES technical centers, (H.B. Ward, Brookhaven, Islip and Suffolk Aviation Academy) will be open for our a.m. and p.m. BOCES students.  The district will continue to provide transportation to and from the high school according to the normal schedule.  Students will only be excused from BOCES programs on days they are scheduled to take assessments.

In order to maintain the integrity of State examinations, we will be observing the following rules:  Uniform Statewide Admissions Deadlines:  No student may enter any State examination after the uniform admissions deadline.  In addition, no student may hand in his or her test materials and leave the examination before this time.  The uniform statewide admissions deadline for morning examinations is 10:00 a.m. and the afternoon deadline is 2:00 p.m.

• Please make sure that your child reports promptly to school for all scheduled examinations. Students should report to the testing room 15 minutes prior to the start of the exam.
• Electronic or wireless communications devices are not permitted in any of the testing locations. Such devices include, but are not limited to cellular phones, smart watches, iPods, iPads, PDAs and video equipment.  Any student in violation of this policy will have his or her examination invalidated and no score will be calculated.
• Students will only be permitted to enter/exit the building through the main lobby doors.
• No parents or outsiders will be permitted into the building for any reason. In addition, we are requesting that students not be in school during times they are not scheduled for exams with the exception of extra help and afternoon activities.

Student attendance during scheduled examinations is very important.  Mid-term exams help teachers diagnostically assess student comprehension of the curriculum through the end of the first semester and significantly impact second quarter grades.  Please help prepare your child for these examinations by making sure that your child studies, gets adequate rest and eats a good breakfast.

Friday, January 26th is a regularly scheduled school day.  It is exceptionally important that all students attend school, as course requests for the 2018-2019 school-year will be discussed in classes.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the main office at 723-2110.
