On-Campus Students will have make-up days available, May 12 - June 2.

Arrival: Families will need to complete the COVID screener on the AISD app and show the staff a green screen at car rider drops off in the back parking lot or at the walk up next to Mt. Olive. Students will need a clean mask, or one will be provided to them. Testing will begin shortly after 8.

Daily schedule: We will have a socially distanced lunch for all students whether they are done testing or not. Most students' 4-hour STAAR test will be done by 12:30.

Dismissal: If you are a remote family, you will be contacted when your student is done testing to be picked up in the office on our 11th street entrance, if you have a on campus learner dismissal will be normal for them.

Reminder: Remote learners may continue on their remote learning path. The STAAR test can only be administered on-campus. Therefore, remote learners are not required to return to campus for the test. With that said, we do encourage all of our students to show what they know and rock the STAAR.

Please contact Mr. Garner (rick.garner@austinisd.org) or Ms. Bell (tiona.bell@austinisd.org) if you have any questions.
