Reminder: It’s quiet time at Darien High School Library, and try to be quiet at Darien Library, too.



We are grateful to the library for accommodating our students, who are reminded to be mindful of other library patrons during exam time.


In the event of a weather-related 2-hour delay, the exam schedule will be as follows:

1st exam:   9:40 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.

2nd exam: 12:10 p.m. – 2:10 p.m.

AM buses will run routes two hours later; PM buses will be at 2:25 p.m.

If school is closed for inclement weather, power outages, or emergencies, the exam schedule will be adjusted so that the next school day will have the exams that were missed and the schedule will move along in order.
