State Testing This Week!

Hello, families!

This is just a reminder that most of our teachers will be out of the office this week to help with High School EOC testing.

You may notice that some Class Connects have been cancelled. If they are cancelled, you will likely receive a recording of the session instead.

If teachers are in the office, they will still hold sessions.

We all pitch in to help with testing around the state for both K12 TX schools, so it's important that we have your support.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Have a super week!
