EQAO Begins Today

Dear Families,

Between May 25th and June 2nd 2016, our students in grades 3 and 6 will be taking part in the provincial Assessment of Reading, Writing and Mathematics.  This assessment is administered to all Grade 3 and 6 students in Ontario’s publicly funded school system by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), an independent agency of the Government of Ontario.

Students will begin the assessment each morning promptly at 9:00 a.m.  Students may write until 11:00 a.m.  For classes who continue writing through recess, an alternate activity time outside, weather depending, will be planned.  During EQAO, the morning announcements, including the national anthem, will take place at 11:30 a.m.

In order to ensure that students are able to focus, there will be no interruptions to our grade 3 and 6 classrooms while students are writing.  All messages for grade 3 and 6 staff and students will be shared once EQAO is completed for the day.

Thank you for your support.

Should you have any questions, please contact the office.
