Dear Parents,

We have just entered our 4th and final marking period of the school year.  Our teachers and staff are committed to working with our students so they reach their full potential and show growth on their end of the year assessments.  We appreciate your partnership in ensuring that your child is present and on time each and every day of the last marking period to receive instruction.  A reminder that our first bell rings at 8:35AM and students must be in their classrooms prior to the tardy bell ringing at 8:45AM. 

As you are aware, Orange County Public School students will be participating in FSA ELA and Math Assessments and NGSSS 2.0 Science Testing.  Our Instructional Coach/Testing Coordinator has created an overview PowerPoint for parents about state assessments.  Link to Parent Presentation
