Final Exam Schedule - Dec. 2014


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,


Dear APA Parents ,


I wanted to make you aware of the schedule for the week of December 16th through December 18th. There will be no school on Monday.


In the elementary school, the day will run as a usual but will end at 1:00 p.m. In the Middle and High School, we will conduct final exams. Each day those students will have two exams of two hours in length. There is a forty-five minute break time between the exams for the students. Each day all APA students will pray before they are dismissed for the day. " Dhur" prayer will start at 1:05 p.m for the entire school and end by 1:20 p.m . Bus riders will be dismissed at 1:20 p.m and non-bus riders at 1:30 p.m .


The morning exams will occur from 8:15 am until 10:15 am each day. The afternoon exams will occur between 11:00 am until 1:00 pm each day. Teachers have been given the discretion to offer either a large unit exam or a comprehensive final over the semester. All final exams at APA carry a 15% semester weight.



The rotation for final exams (Dec. 16-18) will be the same for each grade level:


Tuesday AM Wednesday AM Thursday AM
English Social Studies Math
Tuesday PM Wednesday PM Thursday PM
Islamic Studies Science Arabic & Government


The buses will depart at 1:30 pm. Please be advised the buses will arrive 90 minutes early on those days. Thursday, December 18th is the last day of school for this semester. January 6th, 2015 is the first day of the second semester and all classes resume on that day.


Please be aware that students are required to take these exams. If students are late to school on those days they will have the remaining time for that test to finish their exam. The only exception to that policy will be emergency medical notes from a doctor. Teachers will not be allowed to reschedule any exam for a student without approval from the Principal. Please realize that rescheduling an exam requires the teacher to write an additional version of the exam, which is time consuming.


Jazakum Allah Khier ,

Principal Diana Abdi- M.Ed
