Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal, Daryl Blank. I hope you all safe and sound with the unbelievable blizzard. Tomorrow, Monday, January 25 is the last day of the Fall term and all students are expected to be in attendance. Regents & RCT exams begin on Tuesday, January 26.
The start time of the Regents & RCT exams are 8:45 am for morning exams and 12:45 pm for afternoon exams. Please make sure your child is on time to the exams. If they arrive too late, they will not be allowed to take the exam.
Students have been distributed exam invitations – they are required to bring these invitations to all of their exams. Students will not be allowed to take their examination without this invitation or a school identification card.
It is important that students DO NOT BRING ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT to the room they are taking their exam in. Students who bring their electronic equipment to school, must put them in their lockers or give it to a school supervisor. Any student who is found to be in possession of an electronic device during testing will be given a 0 on that exam and will not be allowed to take any other examinations during the testing week. Let me repeat, any student who is found to be in possession of an electronic device during testing will be given a 0 on that exam and will not be allowed to take any other examinations during the testing week.
If a student does not have any Regents or RCT exams (this applies to most 9th graders), they do not have to come back to school until Tuesday, February 2, when the Spring 2016 term begins.
This is an important message about MetroCard distribution for the Spring semester. Students’ current fall MetroCards will expire on January 31st and will not be valid on the 1st day of the Spring Semester, Tuesday, February 2. Students may come to the school and pick up their Spring MetroCard on Friday, January 29 from 10:00 am to Noon. Staff will be available in the auditorium to distribute cards only during this time. Any student who is unable to come to Fashion on January 29 will receive their MetroCard on Tuesday, February 2 and will have to pay their way to come to school on February 2.
The school cafeteria will still be serving breakfast and lunch during Regents. Breakfast hours remain the same from 7:15 am to 8:45 am. Lunch will be offered from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm.
