Closed Campus Due to STAAR Testing This Week
We will have a closed campus this week due to STAAR Testing on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. No parents, volunteers or lunch visitors will be allowed to visit the campus this week. We want to create an environment that is conducive for our students to be successful.

  • In order to accommodate all of our testers, we are asking students to bring a sack lunch or order a sack lunch from the cafeteria on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Teachers will be eating with their students in their classrooms on these days.
  • Good luck to our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders testing this week!
  • Students may wear their STAAR T-shirts on the day(s) they are testing.
  • Thank you in advance for your flexibility and partnership in education.
  • Special thanks to our “Dads on Duty” who are volunteering to serve as Safety Patrol so our 5th graders can focus on their testing.
