LOCAL MEASURES TESTING – GRADES K-2

This week marks the start of Local Measures testing for our Kindergarten through Second Grade students.  Over the next few weeks, our students will be tested in reading, writing, and math.  All students will begin with the writing assessment which will be administered throughout the next two weeks – testing in Spanish during the week of April 22 and testing in English during the week of April 29.  Please ensure your children to get plenty of rest and enjoy a healthy breakfast before testing so they are able to do their very best on each assessment!

Our 3rd through 6th-grade students will begin CAASPP Testing in May.
Testing Reminders:
  • CELL Phones and Smart Watches will be collected by teachers during testing.
  • BE ON TIME each day!  Students who are late will have to do makeups.
  • Visitors and/or Volunteers are not allowed in the classroom during testing.
  • Classrooms will not be interrupted during testing.  Students may not leave the classroom once testing has started.  (Check doctor and dentist appointments)
  • Send a Snack Bag for your child during the testing week: Granola Bars, Crackers, Pretzels but NO CANDY, Cheetos, Taki’s (refrain from things that are messy or sticky).
