STATE TESTING SCHEDULES
All students must take state-required assessments, which will be administered throughout March and April.
- In-person Elementary & Middle School: Students will take their assessments following their four-day-per-week schedule.
- CDA Elementary & Middle School: Students will take their assessments on identified Wednesdays (when the remaining students are taking their classes remotely).
- High School: Students (in-person and CDA) will take their assessments during identified late-start days. Students will be individually notified of their scheduled testing day(s) and report time(s).
It is very important that parents/guardians closely monitor your email for newsletters and other updates from your child’s school regarding the testing schedules.
SAFETY PROTOCOLS REMAIN IN PLACE
I want to remind you that students and staff must wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines while on school property. We also will be promoting frequent handwashing and the use of hand sanitizer – and we will continue to be vigilant in the cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces.
With spring break and outdoor sports and activities just around the corner, it's tempting to relax a bit and possibly forgo some of the precautions known to prevent the spread of COVID. I ask each of you to continue to do everything you can to keep yourself and others safe. Wear a mask, socially-distance – and get the vaccine when it's available to you. We CAN beat COVID-19, but only if we remain determined and focused on doing so.
As always, I want to thank you for your support of Groveport Madison Schools and for your partnership in your child’s education. Should you have questions, please check with your child's principal or email us at [email protected]
