Date Change: Regents Exams and Review Classes
As described in a letter mailed out with report cards on June 23, Regents exams and Regents review classes will be held at Little Falls Middle School this summer. In this letter, it was stated that to register to take Regents exams and/or a Regents review class, students and parents/guardians need go to Mount Markham High School guidance office in person to complete and sign the required paperwork by Friday, July 14, 2017 between the hours of 6:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. The summer school brochure handed to students who registered for summer school also indicates that the registration deadline for Regents exams and Regents review classes is July 14, 2017.
We have recently been informed that this registration deadline has been changed. Instead of coming to the high school by Friday, July 14 to register, the adjusted deadline is Tuesday, July 11 at noon. Moving the date ahead will give the summer school administration the proper amount of time to order the correct number of Regents exams by the state’s deadline.
I apologize for any inconvenience that this change in deadline may cause. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the high school at (315) 822-2900. Thank you.
