You can help your child by making sure they are at school for testing and by taking the time to do a few important things at home:
Please be sure your child is to school on time.
Please do not schedule appointments or vacations during the testing window.
Ask your child about the testing at the end of each day. Your interest and support are important.
Thank you for your support during testing time, it is much appreciated.
