Message from Mr. Z
Spring Break is quickly approaching and that means once Spring Break is over the spring Ohio’s State Tests will begin. State Testing is required for all students in grades 3 - high school. These tests are only given in person and there is no virtual option. All VLA students will be taking these tests in their home building (the building they would attend if they attended in person). Most of the tests are divided into part one and part two which are administered on different days. VLA students will need to attend and take both parts of the assessment. Students need to be here by 9:30 am and meet in the main office. Please provide the office with a phone number for them to call for pickup when the student is finished testing
You are required to provide transportation for your student on testing days. Students who arrive late on testing days will not be able to test on that day and will have to attend makeup testing on another day to be arranged by the school counselor
Students can go through the cafeteria for breakfast if they would like. Standard breakfast is free this year. Students will need to know their PLSD ID number.
