More On Testing...

  • Tests will be administered on-line. Paper and pencil are still supplied to students to make notes.
  • Tests are untimed; students will have the entire school day to test if needed.
  • Testing sessions will begin between 8:30-9:00.
  • Please make sure your child is well rested and has a healthy breakfast.
  • We provide snacks and water on that day as well. Please do not send a highly caffeinated sports drink.
  • Most importantly, make sure to say positive encouraging words to your child the morning of the test. Your attitude is contagious. Make it a good one.
