ACAP STATE TESTING

ACAP SUMMATIVE DATES: MARCH 15 - APRIL 30 (Spring break is April 5-9, so that week is out.)


-Remote and virtual students are also required to test! Due to the high security of the assessment, all students will be required to test on campus. You will receive more information on how this will take place, but for now, know that if your child is remote or virtual, they will be testing with their regular class. We do not have the staff to cover for them to test at another time. We will make sure they are safely distanced from others.


-The State Department of Education requires that we reach a 95% student attendance rate for state testing. Therefore we need every student to test!

Breaking news!! We have decided that we will have a yearbook this year!! It will be very different from any yearbook in the past, but we believe this year should be documented, maybe more than any other year. More information to follow!

We hope your child will be able to participate in this week's Read Across America activities!

We would love to have some pictures of our remote students who are participating! Please post them to our FB page.

We will be doing iReady growth monitoring this week. Remote parents- please do not help your child with the assessment. We need a true reading of where they are.
