Non-testing students will complete asynchronous lessons for each of the three days following their normal schedule. 

Families may request their student complete both math and ELA assessments if desired. If you would like your student to take BOTH assessments, please complete THIS FORM no later than Monday, April 12. If you do not complete this form, your student will only take the required assessment unless you have opted out. If you have previously opted out of CMAS testing, no further action is required.

Please help your child be rested and ready for the tests by ensuring that they go to bed at a reasonable hour and eat a hearty dinner and breakfast. We are proud of our students and excited to see how much they have learned this year.
