DCS Exemption Policy 2020-2021

For the 2020-2021 school year in order for a student to be exempt from a final exam, he/she must

• have an eighty-five (85) or above average.

• have not been assigned to an Alternative Learning Class (ALC) for more than five (5) days, have not been suspended and/or placed in DeSoto County Alternative Center (DCAC) or the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) at any time during the semester. (August - December or January - May)

Exempt students must follow the proper procedures for “checking in” and “checking out” during the school day. If students are exempt from an exam and must remain on campus, they must report to their normal classes. Because other students will be taking the exam, the exempt student should bring something else to work on.

Checkouts on Exam Days

Checkout windows are between classes. We will not call students out of class while a test is being administered. Parents should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the checkout time in order to allow LHS staff adequate time to conduct checkout procedures. Students checking out will be called for via intercom at the following intervals:

Thursday, May 20th

1st Checkout Window: 9:10-9:35 am (Parents must arrive prior to 9:00 am)

2nd Checkout Window: 11:00-11:10 am (Parents must arrive prior to 10:50 am)

Students will be allowed to check out in between blocks on exam days if they bring a proper checkout note. The note must have a phone number where the parent can be reached for verification. If a student wants to check out with a parent note on May 20th, 21st or 24th, Mrs. Knight must receive the note no later than Tuesday, May 18th. If a student turns in a checkout note after this deadline, we cannot guarantee that the checkout note will be verified.


If a Vo-Tech student is on campus during his/her normal Vo-Tech block, they will report to the cafeteria for that block.
