    Testing will take place each day between 9:15am and 11:30am.  Please avoid checking your student out during this time.  If you are unable to avoid appointments during the testing time, it would be best to miss the testing session and take the test during a makeup session. 

    Students must bring their fully charged Chromebook to school each day, so please remind your student to charge it each night before testing. Students should also bring their charger every day. 

    Please have students eat a good dinner and get plenty of rest each night before testing and wake up and eat a good breakfast.
