Important Information

April 12, 2016


Dear Parents/Guardians,

      I am sending this note to share some very important upcoming dates and events. Please take note of the list that follows:

April 11-14, 18 & 19- PARCC Testing- High School Math & English Language Arts classes
Week of April 18th and 25th- PARCC Make-up testing- for students who were absent
Week of May 2nd- Final round of Discovery Testing- 7th – 12th grade
Week of May 16th- End of Course Exams (EoCs) – 7th – 12th grade
May 12th , 6:00pm- Spring Festival, Jicarita Gym


Please do your best to make sure your child is in attendance and on time during testing in order keep him/her from having to do makeup testing at a later time. These tests not only provide your child’s teachers with valuable data in order to plan instruction to meet his or her needs, the PARCC assessment and EOCs are a state requirement for graduation. Should you have any questions regarding testing, you may contact our school counselors or me using the phone number and appropriate extensions above.

Your child will also be taking home a Registration Packet for the 2016-2017 school year to be filled out and returned by Wednesday, April 20th. This will allow us to work on the schedule and necessary classes for next year. Students who meet the April 20th deadline will be treated to a Root Beer Float on Thursday, April 21st.

I would also like to make you aware of the Shelter in Place Drill, also known as a Lock Down Drill, planned for the last week of April. Please do not be alarmed if you should hear that the school is in Lock Down, this is merely a drill as required by the state fire marshal’s office. Please, do not attempt to call your child or the school during this drill as this will only create confusion and delay completion of the drill.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above information, please do not hesitate to contact me at: mlopez@penasco.k12.nm.us or 575-587-2502 ext 1001.
