PARCC Testing Dates

This year, students in Illinois will take the PARCC test (which has replaced the ISAT). Students will take 3 reading tests and 3 math tests. These tests must be completed between the dates of March 9-April 3.

Freedom students will take their tests on March 10, 11, 12, 17, and 18. Students will take practice tests in advance of the PARCC test so that they can feel confident and comfortable on the actual test date.

Safe Drop off and Pickup

Just a reminder to parents that students can only be dropped off/picked up at the GREEN locations on this map. We understand that when the weather is colder you don't want your student to be out in the cold, but we cannot have parents picking up students in the bus lane due to safety concerns. Thank you for your cooperation!
