We are fast approaching the end of this school year; only  41 school days remaining!

On Tuesday we will begin the State of California’s required State Testing.

The testing will begin on Tuesday, Apr 19, 2022, and conclude on Friday, April 25, 2022. Testing will begin daily at 8:30 am and the last test will be offered at 1:30 pm each day.

All students in grades 3-8 are required to make a valiant attempt at the testing. All testing can only be accomplished at the ICA-approved sites. Obviously, the ICA office in Helendale will be the main site but we will also have satellite testing sites for our students in the Palm Springs and Bakersfield areas.

More specific instructions are likely to follow so please check your emails.

Please feel free to get hold of me if you have any questions not only about testing but graduation requirements, registration for 2022-23, transferring to another school, and any of your educational questions!

Finally, you can connect with your child’s me for a personal update; at 760-515-3933.
