We encourage our students to:

  • Go to bed early (get at least 8-10 hours of sleep).
  • Be on time for school.
  • Plan to bring your lunch from home that morning or purchase your lunch from the cafeteria on these two testing days. Food brought in for lunch will not be allowed for any grade level on testing days. VISITORS for lunch will not be permitted on campus on March 28 and 29.
  • Students may bring one, sealed bottle of room-temperature water. NO other drink will be allowed.

We are proud of our students and know that they are ready to show what they can do. Let’s stand behind them and show our support by making sure these tips are followed by all.
