MCAS Update | May 2015
Good evening/afternoon, this is Mr. Constantino, Principal of Lynn Classical High School, with an important announcement about the MCAS testing taking place next week.
On Tuesday and Wednesday all 10th grade students will participate in the Mathematics portion of the MCAS. This exam will help to determine whether your child is eligible to receive a diploma at graduation.
10th grade students are to arrive at Classical at 7:45 in the morning and make their way to the testing locations. If possible, we ask that cellphones be left home or in their lockers. A cellphone going off during the test could void a student’s test.
Please talk to your children about the importance of trying their best and reassure them that their teachers have prepared them for success on the exam.
Students who are not testing on Tuesday and Wednesday do not have to arrive to school until 11:45. Lunch will be served at 10:45 – 11:30 for those students that want to come in early and eat lunch.
Please note that Monday, Thursday and Friday are regular school days.
Good luck to all the test takers and have a good afternoon/night.
