Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are asking for your partnership on a few items during the weeks of testing.
During testing sessions and breaks, students are not permitted to have access to their cell phones. We wanted to make you aware of this in the event that you need to contact your student.
Please call the schools’ office if you need to contact your student in the event of an emergency.
Please do not schedule any appointments or events for your student during the testing sessions because once a test session is started, it cannot be interrupted and the student must finish the test session once it is started.
Please make sure that students are at school on time and ready to begin at 8:00am. If a testing session is started, they are not able to join the testing session and will need to be pulled from class to test on a different day.
Thank you for your support as we continue to deliver rigorous academics and high-quality learning opportunities that are preparing students for postsecondary success. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
