Roberts and ECHS Newsletter

Week of October 11th, 2021

Notes from Administration

Dear Roberts and ECHS community,


This week is an adjusted schedule for PSAT, SAT and WorkKeys testing. While we will still have late start on Wednesday (October 13th) we will be suspending our regular class schedule and be offering a day of testing for students to demonstrate skills, qualify for scholarships, meet benchmarks, etc.

If your student is taking the SAT or PSAT we will be testing in building 51, we have sent a letter home and handed each student a letter with details about the day.

If your student is in the GED or Lit Center, we will have 'business as usual' and no testing will be taking place.

Finally, if your student is not in PSAT, SAT or GED programming, they will be taking the Work Keys assessment which is an assessment of math, reading and research skills that relate to workplace skills and aptitudes. All of these tests do equate to scholarship, credit and employability measures. We hope your student comes prepared and takes part in the opportunity.


Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday should be our regularly scheduled programs!
