“PARCC TESTING CONTINUES”
Students in Grades 4 & 5 will begin PARCC Language Arts and Math tests on Wednesday April 26th and continue through Thursday, May 4th.
The building will be closed to visitors each day from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. We expect ALL students to be ON TIME each day.
No student will be permitted to leave the building during the PARCC tests, except for illness.
Please be sure that your child gets plenty of sleep, eats a good breakfast, and gets to school on time.
Please refrain from scheduling any appointments during this week of testing which would require your child to leave school during the testing period. Your cooperation will enhance your child’s test performance and is greatly appreciated. The PARCC Test results are not used to grade students on their report cards, but we do file the scores on their permanent records. We will send home a copy of the results at a later date.
Attendance is the Key to Academic Success!
The children convene on the playground every morning from 8:00-8:15 AM unless we have rain, snow or extremely cold weather.
During Delayed Opening students are admitted at 9:30 AM.
Breakfast is served from 7:45-8:10 AM each morning entering at Door #15, or 9:15 AM on Delayed Opening days.
Please remind your child to dress in layers, hats and gloves included, now that the winter weather has arrived.
Parents are NOT permitted to park or drop off students in the staff parking lots located at the end of the building.
At dismissal, please pick up your child at the designated exit. If someone else is picking up your child or if you need to have your child leave school
early for a doctor’s appointment, you must send a note to your child’s teacher.
If your child is late, you must bring your child to main office. School begins promptly at 8:15 AM.
Thank you to all our students and parents who arrive to
school on time every day.
Please keep your phone numbers and contact information up to date
so that important information will reach you.
