Hello Families! Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade will begin state testing in early May. Students will complete testing in English Language Arts and Math. 5th grade students will also complete a Science assessment. At Robert Frost, our staff will be doing all we can to give your student(s) a positive, calm, and encouraging environment to be successful. We will have snacks (brain food) and frequent breaks as needed. For those students opting out of testing, we will provide alternative activities as necessary. If you have not already done so, but would like to opt your student(s) out, please see the attached form in English and Spanish, and return it to the office as soon as possible.  *Note: For the 5th grade science assessment, parents may request their student be exempted from testing based on disability or religion. Unlike the opt-out process for Math and ELA, parent requests for exemption from all other tests must satisfy the following conditions:

  • Be submitted in writing to the office
  • Include the reasons for request (disability or religion)
  • Propose an alternative learning activity for the student

Thank you! Have a great day! Sarah Grimmer
