We have a very important message for all of our 3-5 grade LaunchEd families. FSA testing is coming up in April and that means we need to start planning for all of our 3-5 grade students to come in to school to take the FSA. Since the start of the 4th nine weeks begins when we return from Spring Break, if you want to have your child return face to face, that would be a perfect time to get back in to school and their class.
If your child is going to remain home for the remainder of the school year, we will need them to still come in and take the FSA on their scheduled day. There are two sessions for each subject – reading and math for 3-5 grades, 1 session for writing – 4th and 5th grades, and two sessions for 5th grade science. Only 1 session can be tested on one day, so your child will be schedule to come to school on multiple days.
The district has decided that there will be no alternative times for students to come in and test, so as of now, we will have two different options for you to choose from when arranging to bring your child up for testing on their designated day. Option 1 is for your child to test with their homeroom teacher and class with the face to face students on testing day. That way they are with a familiar person, their teacher, as they take the FSA. Option 2 will be where LaunchEd students will come in and test in a clean, sanitized classroom that is not used during the school week. These students will test with other launched students, but in a small group size.
We are working hard to plan for FSA and the safety of all of our Tigers.
We will be following up with contact to you after Spring Break to schedule your child’s testing day and times. If you have any questions or concerns about FSA this year, please contact Mr. Dolfi
