Drumheller school is open but exams are still optional

International students in Drumheller will find DVSS open today, Tuesday June 25 but they won't have to worry about writing final exams.
Because so many Drumheller and area students and their families have been impacted by the evacuation, all DVSS final exams scheduled for the remainder of the year are optional. This decision was made in consultation with Alberta Education.
This includes Grade 9 Provincial Achievement Tests and Grade 12 Diploma Exams. Students in Grades 7-12 who choose not to write their exams will be exempted from all exams scheduled for Drumheller School. If students choose not to write their exams, their school awarded marks earned-to-date will stand as their final grade.
Students in Grades 7-12 who would like to write their final exams scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday have the option to do so.
Lockers still need to be cleaned out and all textbooks returned.
