Testing standards call for all phones/PDAs/computers/anything electronic to be restricted in the testing area. During testing, you will not be able to contact your son or daughter on the phone, or via text message. In the event of an emergency, call the school.
The only thing that students can do if they finish testing early is to remain in the testing room and read. Please make sure they bring a book!
Packing a snack for the testing block is encouraged.
Please do not schedule any outside appointments on testing days.
Please make sure your student has plenty of rest.
