PARCC testing is scheduled for March 9th-17th for 6th-8th grades and March 20th-28th for 3rd-5th grades.  Make-ups for students who are absent will be done either as student returns or during the first week of April.  Please be sure your child gets plenty of rest during testing.  Also, EVERY student gets FREE breakfast and lunch at school, so be sure your child takes advantage of this.  Studies have shown that children perform better on tests when properly rested and fed.
