State mandated STAAR testing begins Tuesday and Wednesday, April 10 and 11, with fourth grade writing and fifth grade math on the first day and fifth grade reading on the second day. It is very important that all students who are testing get a good night of sleep, eat an appropriate breakfast, remain hydrated, dress comfortably, consider leaving all electronics at home, and arrive at school early to settle in for testing. Every family needs to know that the entire campus will be closed to ALL visitors for ALL grade levels on testing days - meaning no volunteer services, no mystery readers, no lunch visitors, etc. These days must allow us to focus on a quiet, uninterrupted environment that also allows for the administration, office, and support staff to be available for testing purposes as mandated by the Texas Education Agency. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
