Exam Schedule and Storm Day Procedures
Please find linked below the exam schedule with conflicts (by student number).
STORM DAY PROCEDURES
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 2019-2020 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 27
All Monday’s exams move to Tuesday, January 28
All Tuesday’s exams move to Wednesday, January 29
All Wednesday’s exams move to Thursday, January 30 and
All Thursday’s exams move to Friday, January 31
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 31 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 Monday, February 3. In addition, the start of Semester Two would move ahead one day to February 4.
Please do not schedule any time off around these dates in case of a storm day. Students must be present for their exam the day of that exam.
