Testing Dates: May 2nd – 5th
We would greatly appreciate you making sure the following things happen at home:
-Make sure your child gets plenty of rest.
-Make sure your child is at school by 7:30 am, especially, if they’re planning to eat breakfast at the school.
-Avoid scheduling appointments during the week of testing.
-Make sure computers are charged nightly and nothing is downloaded.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation,
Other Things to Know...
-All cell phones will be taken up and placed in a Ziplock bag during testing (including the teachers'), so please encourage your child to leave their phone at home if at all possible.
-If a student leaves the room for a tech issue, it becomes a make-up test.
-If a student leaves the room for restroom, he/she may return, but will not be able to make up for lost time.
-If a student leaves the room due to illness, then the student must make up the test.
We are unable to remove students from testing unless it’s an emergency!!!
