Week At A Glance 4/13/18

Monday, April 16

The Iowa Assessment for grades K-8 begins. Punctuality will be a must due to the disruptiveness late arrivals cause to those already testing. Please remember that students who arrive late will not be allowed to go to class until the test has ended and missing sections of the test will result in incomplete test scores for your child. Students should arrive at school before the morning bell rings at 8:00 AM. Results will be shared with you during parent conferences at the end of May. Thank you for your support.
