Millwood High

Storm Day Procedures for Jan exams


Please carefully review the following examination procedures:
Schools must follow the examination schedule set by the Halifax Regional Centre for Education and published in the 2020-2021 School Calendar.

HRCE high schools are instructed to handle school closures in the following manner:

 If a high school is closed during a scheduled exam day, the exam schedule is adjusted by advancing it one day for each missed exam day.
Example: If there is a school cancellation on Monday, January 25
 All Monday’s exams move to Tuesday, January 26
 All Tuesday’s exams move to Wednesday, January 27
 All Wednesday’s exams move to Thursday, January 28 and
 All Thursday’s exams move to Friday, January 29

If there is a delayed opening, the morning exam will be re-scheduled (to a make-up block) and the afternoon exam will proceed as scheduled.

January 29 is currently a scheduled Assessment & Evaluation Day for high schools. If the exam schedule is advanced by one day, the Assessment & Evaluation Day would move to February 1. In addition, the start of Semester Two would move ahead one day to February 2.
