ACT for All Juniors Tomorrow!
- Get plenty of rest tonight.
- Dress comfortably. Consider dressing in layers, so you'll be comfortable no matter what the room conditions are.
- Make sure you have acceptable photo identification. You will not be admitted to test if your ID does not meet ACT’s requirements, and you will not be permitted to go back to your classroom or locker to get it.
- Bring snacks or drinks to consume outside the test room only during the break.
- Be ready to begin testing after everyone has been checked in and seated.
Mr. Long has approved for all students taking the test to check out once testing is complete. Notes must be left in the box in the attendance office first thing in the morning, before testing begins. We are excited to see what our students can do. Please encourage your child to do his or her best. We want to see Hazel Green on top when the scores are released!
