As the Spring Semester is coming to a close, we would like to inform you of the Final Exam schedule. The schedule provides a “make up” opportunity for students who have special circumstances that are excused in advance by the PTHS Administration. Students are only required to be in attendance during their scheduled Final Exams. Students may, of course, come to school during non-scheduled exam times, but they are to remain in the Commons and study quietly. Please be advised the Cafeteria will be serving a limited menu during scheduled breaks.
Wednesday, May 18
Period 1 7:55 – 9:25 (Exam)
Break 9:25 – 9:40
