No Early Final Exams

As a reminder, per the Parent-Student Handbook, St. Francis does not offer early finals.  Students are expected to be present for all four days of exams. A student who needs to make up finals due to one-time extraordinary circumstances (death in the family, illness with a medical note, school-related events, etc.) must use the school scheduled make-up exam date/s.  If make-up finals are needed, please contact your daughter’s Assistant Principal (grades 9-10, Dr. Javier-Watson, or grades 11-12, Dr. Chavez) to make arrangements.
