Students throughout the state of Texas will also be taking these tests at the same time. These tests are very important, and there are many things that you can do to help your child be successful on this test:
Help your child get a good night’s rest.
Have your child arrive to school on time (7:30-7:50.) so they don’t feel rushed.
Even though the test window is 4 hours, thecampus will be closed to visitors and volunteers all day. We are asking parents not to make afternoon appointments or pick up their students early.
Please make sure your child eats a protein enriched breakfast at home or they can receive a free breakfast as normal in the cafeteria.
Finally, send your child to school with a hug and words of encouragement!
TEST DAY SPECIFICS:
Breakfast will be provided for each student each test day.
Due to security, parents cannot bring lunch to their student those days
Due to test security, parents cannot visit or eat lunch with their kids on test days.
No cell phones are allowed in the classroom during testing. They must remain off and stored in backpacks.
No “E Readers, Kindles, etc” as they are electronic devices. We have checked with the district and they are not allowed on STAAR testing days. The students need to have regular, “old fashioned” reading materials to read after they finish testing.
You make a big difference in how your child feels and performs each day in school, especially on test days. Thank you for helping your child feel well prepared!
