Standardized Testing Schedule

This year’s state standardized testing program includes Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment, the SAT, and NGSS Field Test. We are also administering the PSAT 8/9 during the testing window. Students in grades 3-8, as well as grades 9 and 11, are participants in these assessments. Please see our spring standardized testing schedule for testing grades, dates, and windows.

Upcoming Testing Days

As per the State of Connecticut, the 11th-grade school day SAT is now scheduled for April 24, 2018. We will communicate the information regarding the modified schedule and student locations for testing as we move closer to the date. We will administer the 9th-grade PSAT 8/9 on the same day as the 11th-grade NGSS testing, Wednesday, March 28, 2018. All parents or guardians should review the revised schedule for March 28.

Flu Fact Sheet

The Connecticut Department of Public Health has put out an influenza fact sheet detailing how to limit the spread of influenza in schools. We urge you to please take a moment to read through this flyer and use these practices in your own home. Please also read Dr. Baldwin's January 29 letter to parents regarding the flu. If we all work together, hopefully we can prevent the spread of this serious flu. Thank you!
