Dear HMS Parents,
Next week we will be completing the PARCC End of Year Assessment. All grades (6-8) will take one test per day from Tuesday 4/28 – Friday May 1. Students will take two days of English Language Arts assessments and two days of Mathematics assessments. Students will test during the first two hours of school. Upon completion of testing each morning, we will then run a modified schedule similar to our late start schedule. Teams will communicate this schedule to students.
Please ensure your student gets enough sleep each night and eats a healthy breakfast. Students will be provided a small, healthy snack upon arriving at school each day also.
