Additional Information for all students:

  • Please let your child know that they will have ample time to complete the test. We have planned for an extended period to allow students the ability to take the time needed to do their best on the state assessment.

  • Cell phones and smart watches cannot be near students during the assessment. It would be helpful if they leave the phone and/or watch with you before they arrive on campus. If there is a need to reach you, we will contact you while they are here.

  • Although masks are optional and no longer required, we will continue to follow the CDC guidelines for schools, including distancing and sanitzer use.
