Makeup tests for any student who missed a schedule testing date will occur on a rolling basis throughout May but if possible, it is best for students to take the SOL on the scheduled date. Retakes for eligible students, those who scored between 375 and 399 on the SOL, will occur from May 28 - 31.

Please ensure students arrive to school each morning having had a good night's sleep and with a fully charged laptop.
