  • If we have a snow day or school starts late due to inclement weather, there will be a automated phone call that goes out via the K12 Alert system to all teachers and families. The decision to cancel or start late is usually made between 5:30 and 5:45. As soon as the decision is made, Matt Galley will make the recording and the phone call will go out to all teachers and families. Please be sure your primary phone number in Skyward is the phone number in which you would like to receive the automated message. At the same time the phone call is made, the transportation department will notify the media and the local radio stations will begin to broadcast the information as well.

Each student will take one test a week for the month of May. We will conclude testing at the end of May.

Our current schedule is as follows; The week of April 24 - Science Testing The week of May 1 - Language Arts - Short Answer Items The Week of May 8 - Language Arts - Extended Response Items/Performance Task The Week of May 15 - Math - Short Answer Items The Week of May 29 - Math - Extended Response Items/Performance Task Each class will take the assessment with their homeroom class with the teacher who instructs them in the subject area being tested. For example the Language Arts Teacher will be assessing their students during their Language Arts class. All of our testing will be done before Lunch. If you are making an appointment during the Smarter Balanced Testing please make sure it is in the afternoon.
