April 9 - April 10
Spring 2019 STAAR Testing
Good luck to our BHE students on your STAAR tests. Please keep in mind the following:
- Get a good night’s sleep – try for at least 9 hours
- Eat a healthy, hearty breakfast
- Leave your cell phone at home
- Bring a healthy snack and a water bottle
Also, please do not plan on having lunch with your child on Tuesday or Wednesday. Due to the length of the tests, some students may still be in the process of testing when they break for lunch. Due to test security issues, parents are not allowed to visit with their children during the time they are taking the test.
To ensure proper test security, cell phones brought to class will be turned off and taken up by the teacher. Teachers will give back cell phones at the end of the testing day.
If your child forgets anything they need at home such as lunch and/or glasses, please drop the items off in the office and our staff will make the delivery. Teachers are instructed not to answer their classroom phones or doors during the test.
Students are allowed to bring a snack and water bottle with them to have during the class breaks while the test is going on.
A note to our students – good luck! All we ask is that you try your hardest. While this is an important test, you are so much more than your score.
