Mid-Term & Regents Exam Letter

Hello Schalmont High School,

Below you will find some additional information regarding the January Exam week, which will take place Tuesday, January 24 through Friday, January 27.

Exam Schedule

An exam schedule is available here.


All regular AM and PM bus routes will be provided during exam week. Additionally, we will provide mid-day buses home at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday through Friday during the week. Late buses will run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Breakfast and Lunch

Breakfast will be served in the cafe throughout the week. Various lunch items will be served as well from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Bag Room

Personal belongings cannot be brought into the testing locations. Students can secure their belongings in the Student Commons, which will be supervised during the testing sessions.

Staging Area

Upon arrival at the high school, students can deliver their belongings to the Bag Room then report to the cafeteria. Once the testing locations are ready, students will be released from the cafeteria to their designated testing area.

Electronic Devices

Electronic devices, such as cell phones, Apple watches, etc. are not allowed in the testing locations. These devices can be secured in the Bag Room, which will be supervised during the testing sessions.

Testing Conflicts

If a testing conflict occurs, when a student is scheduled to take two tests at the same time, the student should notify their school counselor and teachers. On the day of the test the student should report to room 103 to complete both exams concurrently. Supervised breaks will be provided as needed.

Snow Day Make Up

In the event of a school cancellation due to inclement weather, a make-up day will be held on Monday, January 30. Regular classes will be in session, while exams that were postponed due to the school closure will be held. Further information will be provided in the event of this occurrence.


There will be no district-provided transportation to BOCES CTE programs Tuesday through Friday during exam week. All BOCES CTE campuses will be open during exam week and students may attend their CTE programs if they are not scheduled to take a midterm exam and they are able to arrange for their own transportation.

If you have any questions regarding January Exam week, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Matthew Heckman
