    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.

    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.
