Please ensure that your student has the following:
Testing Preparation:In order to ensure that all students' iPads are charged, updated, and ready to go, they will be required leave their iPads and chargers at school overnight prior to taking the tests. Please also anticipate that during testing, your child will not have access to his or her cell phone. (We are actually required to have them power their phones completely down.) If there is an emergency and you need to reach your child, please call our main office at (303) 806-2266. Snacks:Of course, the kids want to be sure they are well-fed. If you would like to sign up to bring snacks, we would very much appreciate it. You can do that using the following link:www.SignUpGenius.com/go/8050D48ADA929A75-snacks Please be aware that we do have some food allergies. If possible, leave food in its original packaging so that these students can check the ingredients. Please visit this link for the more assessment information from our district.
- A set of corded headphones or earbuds that work. If your headphones connect via bluetooth, they will not be compatible with testing as we are required to disable the bluetooth on the iPads. (Let us know ASAP if you are unable to supply a set.)
- A charger and cord that works. If your student does not have a working charger and/or cord, please notify us immediately. We will supply your student with new equipment as needed. You may be charged for replacement. ($19 for a cord, $29 for a charger box)
- A reusable water bottle with your child's name written on it.
