Dear Alma families,
In May, Alma scholars in 3rd through 8th grade will take the state administered Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams in Literacy, Math, and Science. Only 5th and 8th grade scholars will take the Science exams. At this time, we have confirmed the MCAS schedule for in-person scholars only. We are awaiting additional guidance from DESE regarding MCAS testing for scholars learning remotely.

- Science 5th grade ONLY
- Thursday, May 20th: ELA 6th – 8th

We ask our families to . . .
1. Make sure your child is on time and in attendance everyday – missed exams must be made up.
2. Make sure your child is well rested each day getting 8-10 hours of sleep the night before.
3. Wish your child well and encourage them to do their best!
If you have any questions or concerns about the MCAS test, please feel free to contact the school.
