Standardized Testing – May 13-17

May 2nd, 2019 by Trinitas Classical

All full-time students will take tests the week of May 13 (M-F for Grades K-2; T-Th for Grades 3-8). The testing is scheduled during the morning hours and will end before lunch each day. It’s important to plan for your children to have a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast so they are prepared to take the test.

Homeschool families, please contact your classroom teacher for the test schedule if your child(ren) will not be participating as the testing may impact your partnership class schedules.

PLEASE NOTE: We may be able to make up missed days of testing due to illness, but cannot make up testing for planned absences.
