NO HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES 4/9 & 4/10

There will be no regular high school classes on April 9th or April 10th.
 
April 9th will be SAT testing day. All 11th graders will need to inform their college professors that they will not be in attendance on April 9th.
 
April 10th will be PSAT 9 and PSAT 10 testing day. All 9th and 10th graders will need to inform their college professors that they will not be in attendance on April 10th.
 
The bus to and from FRCC will be running on both days.
 
Please know, though, that NO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS will be permitted into the building unless they are testing.
 
The school building will be open to students testing as early as 7:40, so we can get students checked in and set for their testing as soon as possible. Our projected time to start the assessment is at 8:00. Please make sure your student is here as early as possible and is not late on test day. Once testing has started, no students will be permitted to the testing area and students will need to go home.

Important Pieces of Information:
  • There is no scheduled time for lunch. This is the regulation put up by CollegeBoard.
  • Students are permitted to bring snacks and water bottles.
  • If students are not picked up on time, students will be sent off campus. No supervision will be provided for these students when testing is over.
Permitted personal items in the testing environment:
Jacket/coat
Snacks (kept off desk)
Water bottle (kept on the floor)
Calculator (optional, one will be provided)- most graphing calculators and all scientific calculators are permitted
 
If students have cell phones, smart watches, or any other personal belongings not listed above, they will be taken during the testing time and kept with a monitor. Students will not have access to their personal belongings while testing is happening. I recommend not bring anything than the necessary items to school.
 
Ms. Colson highly recommends having your student do some sort of practice test. Below is the list of practice items available online:
