Loud Hallways in the MYP

Hello MYP teachers,

Could we please make sure to keep to the exam schedule and avoid dismissing blocks early? It is a challenge to say on top of the release times, but no doing so is causing noisy corridors while other students are still in the midst of assessment.

Please and Thanks!
