April 5th 2018

Today is our second day of testing for PARCC testing.
Please make every effort to arrive on time to school (by 8:00 a.m.), eat breakfast at home OR school, and get a good night's rest each night. Students are also encouraged to bring their own headphones or earbuds that are compatible with Chromebooks

There is also a VERY STRICT rule on cell phones as it relates to PARCC. Cell phones are NOT even permitted to be in the classrooms during testing. We realize that many of you have cell phones, but during PARCC testing students MUST keep their cell phones either in their lockers or at home. 
And as always...do your best on the tests!
