ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL DAY SCHEDULE – TESTING – MARK YOUR CALENDAR
In an effort to support our students to perform at their best, Horizon Honors is implementing some changes to our test taking procedures.  More will be shared as we get closer to the testing window, but one change that will impact all students is an alternative schedule we will be following for four days.  This schedule will allow us to test our students only in the morning blocks when they are most ready to perform, minimize the impact on instructional days, and allow for technology to be available for both testing and classroom use.  Please read each day carefully to understand how your schedule will be affected.  Accommodations will be made for students who, because of carpools or other circumstances, need to be on campus prior to 10:30 a.m. and are not testing.  A study location will be available to them.
