OST Testing Dates for Students in Grades 3, 4 & 5

Spring testing will be here before we know it. We want to provide you with these dates because it is important that your child is in school on their assigned testing date prior to the start of the test. Students tend to do their best when their routine is consistent. We recognize that you are not able to control everything, but if you could be cognizant of these dates when making appointments, coming in late, etc. we would appreciate it. Note: If a child is late to school on a testing day, they are not able to enter the classroom if the test has already started.


***All Testing Starts at 9: 30 a.m.***


3rd Grade Math: April 27 & 28


5th Grade Science: April 28 & 29
