Coyote Weekly Update 3/23/18

State testing begins next week and to support the testing schedule here is our calendar for March and April so families can plan for a slight change to our class schedule:

  • For the last week of March, we have no school on Friday, March 30 for our Spring Holiday. This means the week of March 26-29 we will have our regular Monday and Tuesdayschedule but we will have even classes (2,4,6) block day on Wednesday, March 28 and the odd block (1,3,5) on Thursday, March 29.
  • You will notice that due to AzMERIT and AIMS testing, we did make a change to our class schedules on April 3 and 4 along with April 10 and11. Those had been scheduled as traditional 6 period days and have been adjusted to block days to accommodate testing sessions. Those dates are highlighted in yellow.
  • Friday, April 27 we will have an assembly on that day with even classes.
