Please make every effort to have your student at school and on time, avoiding making appointments during school hours on these dates. Students must finish a test they have started before they can leave school. Hence, it is very important that they attend school without interruption on their exam day(s). Additionally, because this test is operated under state guidelines, students may not be in possession of any electronic devices that can be used for communicating, timing, creating images, or storing images. These devices will be collected by the Test Administrator and returned after testing is complete.
