Tuesday, March 9th Grade 11 - ACT In Person

Juniors - Arrive at their testing rooms prior to 7:20. There will be breakfast in the cafeteria before school starts (lunch will only be served to those students with accommodations who have been contacted about staying past 12:30pm). Students will leave all possessions, including phones and smart watches, in the hallway prior to entering their test room.

To be admitted, students will need their student ID. Students should bring two pencils, their computer, charger, and calculator (optional) into the testing room. Snacks will be provided during the 15 minute break after the first two tests. Students under standard time should expect to finish testing around 12:30. Times will differ for rooms with accommodations. After the test, students may drive home or take their bus home. Juniors are not expected to attend their 4th block class.

Freshman, Sophomores, and Seniors - Will engage in their classes VIRTUALLY on Tuesday. All learning will be synchronous and students should log into their large group Google Meet posted in Google Classroom (unless their teacher has communicated otherwise) to be marked present for each class. If a student is having technical issues while working virtually, they should first notify their teacher of the issue and then look at the Student Troubleshooting document for help. If there is an issue with their Chromebook not working properly, students should complete a Student Tech Help ticket.
