SOLs begin May 7
Standards of Learning (SOL) Assessments begin on Tuesday, May 7. It is important that students be present and on-time to school on testing days. Please do your best to avoid appointments and planned absences. Students will be more successful if they get a good night’s sleep and eat breakfast. The Virginia Department of Education states that electronic devices cannot be brought into testing locations. Please make sure your students plan to leave their devices at home or secured in their locker on testing days.
