THE GUTHRIE GAZETTE

APRIL

STANDARDIZED TESTING

Every spring, schools around the country administer Standardized Tests to their students. We will be testing the week of April 10th - 13th. The entire week will be reserved for testing, and Friday, April 13th, will be a designated "make-up" day for Kindergarten through 5th Grade. No homework will be assigned that week.

Kindergarten - 5th Grade will test Monday, April 10th through Wednesday, April 12th, with a make-up day on Thursday, April 13th.

PreK and Kindergarten will test Monday, April 10th through Thursday, April 13th.

Three-Year-Olds do not test.


We ask parents to please make every attempt to schedule any appointments for your child after school or during another week. Look for more information in your student's Homeroom Teacher's Newsletter with suggestions for testing days such as:

  • Bring a couple of books to read during down time.

  • Bring a snack and bottle of water.

  • Get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast (preferably something with protein.)
