Students should talk to their teachers regarding the work they will miss on the day of their exam, and are welcome to attend all classes that are outside of their testing window. If they are unable to return to school after their exam, or do not attend school prior to their exam, the absence will be marked as school-related. This will allow students the flexibility to prepare and recover from the exam, and attend the classes that cannot be missed.
