Finally, to ensure your student performs to the best of his/her ability, please make sure your child gets to bed early and eats a nutritious breakfast and lunch during the time testing is occurring. Also, we'd ask that you extend every effort to ensure your student attends school on these days, so please try to avoid making daytime appointments for your child on these school days.
