SBAC Testing

Our 3rd-7th grade students will be testing from 8:15-10:30 daily for the next two weeks. Please DO NOT disrupt their classrooms. Every available adult on campus is being leveraged to support small group testing and logistics. Any behavioral concerns during these hours must be handled internally. Anything requiring admin attention will have to wait until after 10:30. Thank you for your support and understanding. Good get 'em Dragons!!
