Modified Contact Days

posted May 2, 2018, 9:01 PM by Michael Kassowitz

Modified contact days are Friday, May 4th and Monday, May 7th. All kids were given a testing time: 9-11:30 or 12:30-3:00. The kids will be taking their English/Language Arts MAP assessment during this time. The difference here is that kids will probably need at least 90 minutes to finish the test, rather than the usual 60 minutes. We did set up testing blocks for a total of two and a half hours if your child needs more time to complete the test.

Modified Contact Days - CORRECTION

posted Aug 16, 2017, 1:02 PM by Michael Kassowitz

Many of you who came to Meet and Greet on August 12 already signed up for a time to have your child tested in Reading. Unfortunately, I made a mistake on the dates. On the sign-up sheet, I accidentally wrote the dates as September 25 and 28th, but the actual dates are August 25th and 28th. Luckily, a parent caught my mistake halfway through Meet and Greet. If the actual August dates and times don't work for you, let me know and we will get it corrected.
