A couple of reminders as we move into week 2:
1. It is very important that all students are in school by 8:40 on testing days.
2. Please make sure that your child's iPad is fully charged when they come into school.
3. See below for this week's testing schedule.
If your child is completing the SBAC remotely, please view this video: https://web.microsoftstream.com/video/7145d90e-fbe7-4412-bf59-6be54ce34f95 and make sure that the process outlined in the video has been completed.
The times listed for SBAC testing are set for all students. Please make sure that your child has eaten breakfast or lunch before beginning testing. We need them to remain totally focused on their testing. Students will not be able to leave the testing session once it begins. Please plan your daily schedule with these times in mind. We appreciate your flexibility.
Please remind your child that they are not to hit pause on their test unless instructed to by their teacher. There are set guidelines for when pauses can occur in the test and these must be followed by staff and students.
