Parent Chromebook Night

9th Grade parent Chromebook night will be held Monday August 7, 2017 from 4:30-7:30. Parents will need to fill out paperwork and watch the Chromebook video and pay the Chromebook fee (if payment has not already been made). Please park in the front parking lot and enter through the front doors. Staff will be available to direct you to the correct areas. 

Solar Eclipse Day August 21, 2017

To celebrate the eclipse happening on August 21, the high school will be starting and ending classes 30 minutes later than our normal day. The schedule for August 21 will be 9:00-4:00. Blount County will be providing eclipse viewing glasses for each student for the event.

Semester Exam Exemption Policy

As communicated at the beginning of the school year, Blount County Schools policy now allows some students to be exempt from their final exams at the end of the semester. This exemption refers to teacher-made exams and does not exempt students from state-mandated End-of-Course tests. Semester exams will be held Friday, December 15 and Monday, December 18, with makeup exams on Tuesday, December 19. Students earn exam exemption on a class-by-class basis by meeting the following criteria:

  • 4 or fewer absences per class (excused or unexcused–field trips do not count as absences)
  • Passing the class
  • Having no in-school or out-of-school suspensions

Students will be specifically notified of their exemption status by each teacher. Students who are exempt will not have to attend school on December 15, 18, or 19. Students who are not exempt must take their exams, and testing periods will not be interrupted for student check-outs.
