On Tuesday, May 16 and Wednesday, May 17, sophomores will take the mathematics Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exam. Testing will occur during the first three blocks of each day in the world language wing, meaning students who are not taking MCAS will have their language classroom relocated during the MCAS testing period. Additionally, students will not be allowed to linger in the world language wing and must be silent when passing it.

Due to MCAS testing, schedules have been adjusted. On Tuesday, which is a C day, there will be no advisory and classes will be run in a different order: eight, five, one, seven, three and four. This means that blocks one and five will swap, and blocks two and six will swap.

“If you have any questions about the week ahead, please ask any adult,” WHS Principal Allyson Mizoguchi wrote in an email to students.
