As you have hopefully heard by now, our schedule will be adjusted during MCAS testing days next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Homeroom will begin at 9 a.m. on each of the days. The bus company has informed that student pickups would be similar to what they are for a two-hour delay. Dismissal will still be at 2 p.m. each day. The reason for this was highlighted in a post earlier in the week.
Parents of sophomores are reminded that this late start is intended to give students an extra hour of sleep prior to testing. Sophomores are reminded that the MCAS ELA Exams will begin immediately after homeroom and testing will be given in homeroom. Students need to bring several sharpened #2 pencils and dictionaries will be allowed on Tuesday but not allowed on Wednesday and Thursday. A thesaurus is not allowed on any testing day.
