FSOA 1/6/23 Elementary Parent Communication

FSOA 1/6/23 Elementary Parent Communication

**This communication is for students in grades 2-5.  Information for our secondary students will be in a separate email.**

Hello Students and Families,

We are so excited to begin the new semester! It has been great seeing students already in learning labs and peer engagement.  Please see the important information below.


Assessment Day- Friday, January 13th, 2023

Please note that Friday, January, 13th, 2023 is Elementary Assessment Day.  The purpose of this day is to test your students in reading and math so that our teachers can plan instruction that is individualized to your student’s needs! At this time, our most accurate testing is formatted for in-person administration.  This means we are requesting that your child(ren) come in-person for one session (3 hours and 15 minutes) on Assessment Day in order to complete these assessments. 


On assessment day, there will be no live instruction. The regular daily schedule will resume on Tuesday, January 17th.  For these in-person assessments, we will be utilizing space at the Adams 12 Educational Support Center. (1500 E. 128th Ave. Thornton, CO 80241)


Time Slots:

8:00am-11:15am Last Names: A-K

12:00pm-3:15pm Last Names: L-Z


Each student should bring the following materials:

·  Charged District Chromebook and Headphones

·  2 Sharpened Pencils

·  Water bottle, if desired

·  Masks are optional

Thank you for your continued support.  We look forward to seeing you in-person on Friday, January 13th!
