The College Board has notified higher education institutions that fall testing has been disrupted due to the hurricanes and Northern California wildfires. Students should contact individual colleges about flexibility on admissions timetables, particularly early decision/early action deadlines. Students can also share their financial situation in the special circumstances section on their CSS Profile application.

Free December SAT Registration for Wildfire-Impacted Students

The College Board is offering a free December SAT registration to California students affected by the wildfires in FEMA-designated counties. We know this is a challenging time and hope this measure helps students who are struggling. Please scroll down for the list of FEMA counties.

  • Students should register for the December SAT and then call Customer Service at 866-756-7346 by November 21 to receive a refund. The paper registration deadline is November 14.
  • In any severe hardship case, CSS Profile will provide assistance to families affected by the California wildfires in need upon request with Customer Service (844-202-0524).

We hope this eases some worry so students’ college-going plans are minimally disrupted. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the wildfires.

Dear Viking Family,

 

Greetings from Yearbook. We are contacting you to let you know about a particular situation this year that may affect you. We have an unusually small number of yearbooks available for purchase this year – approximately fifty. It is very likely that some students will not be able to purchase a yearbook who would like one.

 

In the past, we have always sold yearbooks on a first come, first served basis, and we have never had to say no to anyone. Given our situation this year, we have decided to preferentially offer the available yearbooks to seniors first. During distribution on Friday, we will take the names of any seniors who want to purchase a yearbook. If there are more seniors than we have books available, we will conduct a simple lottery to determine the order. We will post the names of those chosen by Tuesday morning, and those selected will be able to purchase their books on Tuesday for $100 cash only, at lunch or after school from the business office. If they do not purchase their books on Tuesday, they will forfeit their claim. Any books still remaining will be offered to all students first come, first served, on Wednesday at lunch and afterschool.

 

Students who still wish to purchase a yearbook have the option of doing so. Late book sales will be online at yearbookforever.com, for $110 plus a $2 processing fee. Books must be ordered by June 9th, and they will be mailed to you approximately by late June.

 

In this fashion, all students who want a yearbook will still be able to purchase one, but not everybody who wants one will have one during Finals Week. For those of you who have purchased a book in advance, we thank you. For those of you who would like to purchase one, you still can – it just won’t be as timely, and it will cost a bit more. We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to do so.

 

In the future, we encourage all Vikings to purchase their yearbooks as early in the year as possible. This guarantees that you will receive a book, saves you money, and eliminates the anxiety and inconvenience of end-of-the-year sales.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Steve Forrest

Yearbook Adviser

Yearbook Update

 

The final sales list for the yearbook is now posted here and in the window of room 14. If you have bought a book, please make sure your name is on the list. If your name has been omitted, please notify Mr. Forrest as soon as possible, preferably with proof of purchase, date purchased, etc., so it can be corrected.

 

If your name is not on the list, you will not receive a yearbook at distribution. Yearbooks will be distributed only to those people whose name is on the list. Any disputes will be resolved during finals week, but we can manage distribution only on Friday, May 26. Please resolve any issues ahead of time.

 

Yearbooks will be distributed from the South Gym immediately after 6th period. No yearbooks will be released in advance. Please have photo ID with you. You may not pick up someone else’s yearbook without a signed note from them. No books will be sold on distribution day. Books will be sold through the business office on a first come, first served basis during finals week, at lunch and after school, for $100 cash only. Supplies are limited, and we cannot guarantee availability. You may also pick up your yearbook during finals week if your name is on the list.

 

Thanks from the Yearbook team.

Montgomery Cyber High will end May 24 for this school year. Seniors, you will need to take all final tests by this date to ensure that credits earned are available to meet graduation requirements. Students in grades 9-11 need to finish all classes before May 24 because there is no guarantee Cyber High will be offered during the next school year. Finish your credits by May 24. 

 

The Computer Lab is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 3:15 to 4:45 for Cyber High and Mr. Baglien is there to assist you. Final tests take place in the Computer Lab; you cannot test on your own.  Special arrangements to test at another time, outside of the Computer Lab days and hours, must be made with Mr. Baglien individually. You must provide a legitimate reason for why you need to test at an alternative time. There are eight weeks left to complete your courses; this is more than enough time if you attend weekly. After May 24 Cyber High will end. If you do not complete courses by then, there will be no extension granted.
