Parents, below is the testing schedule that we (and all the other schools in the county) will be following for our yearly state testing.  This used to be called Smarter Balance and is now called AIR.  Please be mindful of students getting full rest and being on time to school.  Testing is scheduled for each of these mornings and has a recommendation time of approximately 2 hours, but since it is an untimed test we have to be prepared for students to take as long as they need.  Therefore if you could minimize appointments on these days or if you must have them scheduled for the afternoon it would greatly benefit your student and our school. Thank you.
