Important Information about EOG/EOC Testing:

  • Students are expected to bring their charged, Wake County Chromebooks on testing days. All testing will be online and personal computers are not permitted.
  • We are not permitted to interrupt the testing setting and are not able to check students out until school-wide testing ends at approximately 12:30 each day. This includes all students on campus, even if they are not testing that day.
  • As you are planning appointments for your child in the coming weeks, you will want to consult the testing schedule. 
  • Fitbits, Apple Watches, airpods and smart watches and other smart devices are not permitted in the testing room.  Have students keep these items at home during testing.
  • Cell phones must be turned off and put away for the entirety of the testing session.   


NC Check Ins for math 8 will be given on Tuesday and Wednesday. 


Students taking Spanish 1/French 1/Spanish 2 for high school credit: Exit exams for these courses are in progress.  The exit exam score will affect the final grade in PowerSchool. Your child's Final grade (F1) is calculated by taking the grades of Semester 1 (40%) + Semester 2 (40%) + Exit Exam (E1 20%). You must have a passing F1 grade to earn high school credit. Mrs. Prijatel, Mr. Bruce, and Mrs. Ces will communicate directly with details.

Interim grades were finalized last Friday and all grades will be updated in PowerSchool.  Please check your child’s academic progress to ensure they are meeting your expectations.
