There have been a few upper-classmen (in mixed grade level classes) students confused about the testing schedule next week. Although teachers have been encouraging students to attend school, number four of the Weekly Email may have misled students to believe that they can simply choose to stay home. What I should have communicated is the following:
Please remind your students about the test and stress its importance of it. Upper-classmen in mixed-grade level classes will not test and parents may choose to excuse their child from school, or students may study in the cafeteria during that class period.
I am sorry for the confusion. We would like to make sure students don’t miss classes that are outside of the testing schedule. There are many upper-classmen classes that will not have testing going on, so we don’t want students to miss these classes.
