ACT--Tuesday March 20th

On Tuesday, ALL juniors will take the statewide ACT. Please remind your students of location changes for the morning, as the math/science wing will be utilized for testing. Some of the changes are listed below:

  • No bells to dismiss students during testing.
  • Juniors will report directly to their ACT testing rooms at 8:15.
  • 9th/10th/12th grade students that normally have classes in the math/science wing will be relocated to other empty classrooms throughout the building. Please refer to the latest schedule sent out by Mischa Brainard for these locations. Copies of this schedule will also be posted throughout the school.
  • Juniors will eat lunch upstairs in the gymnasium once they have been dismissed from the ACT.
  • Juniors will go to the auditorium for 4th/5th after they eat lunch on Tuesday, March 21st. Junior teachers need to help supervise in the auditorium during the blocks they normally have juniors.
  • Teachers that have been displaced may return to their regular classrooms during 4th and 5th blocks.
