Dear Parent/Guardian:
It is almost time for your Child to take the ACT test. There have been some changes for this year's ACT test.
1.    The test will be taken online instead of the traditional paper and pencil test.
2.    Since the test is online, we will have staggered start times.
       a.    If your child's last name begins with the letters A-F, they will need to be at school by 7:45 am for an 8: 00 am test start.
       b.    If your child's name begins with the letters G-J, they will need to be at school by 8:15 for an 8:30 am test start.
       c.    If your child's name begins with the letters K-Par, they will need to be at school by 8:45 am for a 9:00 am test start.
      d.    If your child's name begins with the letters Pat-Z, they will need to be at school by 9:15 am for a 9:30 am test start.
3.    The writing portion of the ACT will be given this year, so the time of the test will be extended. There will be breaks between test sections and between the regular sections and the writing section. Snacks will be provided as well as lunch between the regular sections and the writing section.
4.    Please leave your cell phones at home.
5.    When your testing section is complete, you will be able to go home.
6.    If you have other children in the high school in grades 9,10, or 12, they will not come to school for any part of the day unless they are seniors in concurrent enrollment college       classes. The concurrent enrollment college classes will be on their normal schedule for the day.
7.    If your child is taking the test with accommodations, please contact Derrick Cook in the counseling office at 719-4888 for additional details about accommodated students. Their schedule will be different from the one stated in #2 above.

Sincerley,
