PSSA Testing Dates

As you are aware, our PSSA tests begin on Monday, March 24 and continue through March 31. Students will begin testing at 9:00 each morning. Students who arrive late will wait until the test is over and then join the class. We try and minimize any distractions during these times. Please also note that all cell phones will be collected each morning from students and returned each afternoon. If you have any questions, please contact me or Mrs. Applegate (Test Coordinator).
