VPE has set the dates for our spring KPREP testing. Testing is shortened this year and will be taking place over two days. Students who are in-person learning in grades 3-5 will test on Monday, May 10th and Tuesday, May 11th. Students who are remote learners who wish to come into school to test will be able to do so on Thursday, May 6th and Friday, May 7th. Unfortunately, due to state guidelines KPREP can not be administered remotely like MAP testing and will require students to come to school on the noted testing days. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to have your remote learner scheduled to test during the remote testing dates. The KPREP testing schedule as follows:
- Remote Learners - Thursday, May 6th & Friday, May 7th - @ 8:00
- In Person Learners - Monday, May 10th & Tuesday, May 11th
- Daily Schedule
- Day One: 3-5 Student Survey, Reading Part A & Math Part A
- Day Two: 4th - Science & 5th On Demand
During the month of April student will be taking the MAP test. This test will be administered in both reading and math. Students will complete the assessment with their homeroom teacher if in-person learning. Students who are learning remotely will take the assessment with their Caring School Community staff member. During assessment days the remote schedule will be altered. Please look for communication from your child's teacher regarding the testing dates and schedule.

Yearbook Help Needed
Vaccinations are an important part of keeping our students healthy and ready to learn. If you have not had a chance to get your child's immunization record updated at school, please find time as soon as possible to obtain certificates for your student from your healthcare provider. Students not in compliance may be excluded from attendance, especially in the event of widespread illness. If you are unsure if your student's records are up-to-date, please check with our school nurse Deddie VanBussum or the front office staff.
