They will test from 8:00-11:30 each day…Please make sure not to schedule appointments on these days before noon.  These tests are mandated and will have to be made up if absent.  If you know you will be checking your student out for something that can’t be rearranged before testing dates, you need to make sure to let the office know before that day so we can send them out of the room before the test starts.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE:  If you do not live in our district and want to attend our school, you must submit a Freedom of Choice application to the Superintendent’s office before May 1st, 2018.  If you are not sure if you are in our district you can call the our office and we can find out for you or you can call our Tax Assessors office and ask them to tell you what school district you pay taxes in for your property.  Filing now for Freedom of Choice is the easiest way to go about this.  If you miss this deadline you will have to go to the district you pay taxes in and see their Superintendent to ask for a Board to Board Transfer. Freedom of Choice is ONLY for K-12 students. EACH child in your family has to have their own papers filed as they enter school.
