State Testing Resumes This Week
As we enter the last week of April (wow!), we wanted to remind families that our End of Course State Testing will resume this week. Please see below for a quick reminder for subjects and starting times for non-tested students. For more details, please see this link to information sent out a few weeks ago.
The biggest reminder/request that we have is to please make sure that your students has a fully charged Chromebook the morning of testing. Thank you for your help!

In the past, we have often been able to use events like Homecoming and Prom to help parents/guardians remember to pay student fees. With no Prom or Homecoming over the last year, however, unfortunately many student fees have gone unpaid. Please consider this a friendly reminder to check and pay for your child's student fees. Thank you for your help! Here is a link to the PaySchools website, and please feel free to reach out to the front office (513-891-0010) for any help or questions. We greatly appreciate it!
