  • PSSA Testing

    The CT PTO is supplying a snack and bottle of water every day to all students taking the 2017 English Language Arts, Math, and Science PSSAs.  Below is the list of snacks and days of distribution.  If you are uncomfortable with your child receiving a snack, especially with regards to allergies, please make your homeroom teacher aware as soon as possible.

    Reminder:  Please take a moment to reschedule conflicting well visits to the doctor or dentist, as needed. The district policy is to mark students "Unexcused" for "preventable" absences - such as doctor/dentist well visits and vacations - during PSSA testing, which is only applicable for students in grades 3-5.
