Some things to keep in mind for the week of upcoming testing

If you've been reading you know that not next week, but the week after, is our second round of spring EOC testing on campus - Algebra (freshmen) May 5th, US History (juniors) May 6th, and Biology (freshmen/sophomores) May 7th.

If you have a freshmen, sophomore, or junior who will be testing, please be aware of the following:

1. Students should be dismissed from testing rooms prior to lunch.

2. Please make sure students get plenty of rest the night before.

3. Students are expected to be in dress code while in their testing room.

4. Students will stay in their testing rooms for the majority of the day. They may bring a library book to read (no magazines, crosswords, etc.) once they have finished testing.

5. Please remember cell phones, ipods, mp3 players, laptops and other electronic devices cannot be out before, during or after the test. If caught with one, a student’s test might be invalidated. Students will be asked to turn them in to the teacher before testing. They will be returned after testing with no penalty.
