* A separate letter will be released regarding the details of the activity.
- In the event that classes are suspended during a quarterly test day, the sequence of exams will still be followed upon the resumption of classes; i.e., when QT Day 1 is suspended – the exams scheduled on Day 1 will be given once classes resume.
- Parents are requested NOT to call-up or set appointments with the subject teachers for the duration of the exams until the official release of grades unless requested by the teachers concerned. This is to give teachers ample time to compute the grades.
- For assistance, please call the HS Principal’s Office (loc. 347, 425, 348, 337, and 253).
Lastly, please note that Quarterly Tests days (October 22-24) are not part of the seven-day cycle. As such the cycle will continue as soon as the Third Quarter starts e.g. if October 21 is Day 5 (last regular class day for the 2nd quarter), then November 4 is Day 6 (start of the 3rd quarter) and so forth.
Please be guided accordingly. Thank you very much.
