Dear Families,

We sent home the ACCESS letter last week, announcing the window of testing for ESOL students, beginning on JANUARY 22.  Your child will take four tests (Listening, Reading, Speaking, and Writing) on four different days in a three week period until mid FEBRUARY.  Please try to be at school DAILY unless extremely sick (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or other contagious condition like pink-eye or lice). Results will be sent home in the final report card in late May.

It is EXTREMELY important for your child to be well-rested with a healthy breakfast and lunch.  Some parts of the test are in the a.m. and others in the p.m., depending on the schedule of each teacher.  Encourage your child to take their time, not rushing through the test which is on a laptop computer with a headset and a mouse for 1st-5th.  Kindergarten students have individual testing with a teacher without a computer.

Sincerely,
ESOL TEAM
