Students in need of recoup hours meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the cafeteria from 4pm to 5pm. We only have two Saturdays left. December 7th and December 14th from 8-12. Please be sure to have your hours signed and turned in to the attendance office as soon as possible. Tutoring hours can be used as recoup time. Deadline for recoup is December 17th. If your hours are not completed you can be denied credit for your classes.
Please Note: Due to the inclement weather coming, if we are out of school Friday, we will not have recoup this Saturday. If we attend school Friday we will have recoup.

STAAR Retest Information
The STAAR retests for those that did not meet satisfactory on the spring or summer STAAR tests will be the week we come back from the Thanksgiving Holiday.
ELA 1 Writing is Monday, ELA 1 Reading is Tuesday, ELA 2 Writing is Wednesday, ELA 2 Reading and Biology are Thursday, and Algebra is Friday. If you need both ELA 2 Reading and Biology then your Biology test will be the following week.
The testing will occur in the lower gym, A floor, and the library. Your room assignments will be posted outside of the counseling center. If you are assigned to the lower gym you will be assigned to a specific group. Your teachers will also have this information so you can ask them where you are supposed to go.
Teachers, it is very important that you make sure that any students you have either 1A or 1B know that they should go to their testing location instead of coming to your class.
If you are testing bring a pencil with you and report to your testing room at 8:35!!!
