Information about state assessments and students returning for the fourth quarter from Principal Brannigan

Hello QMS Families,

I have a few more details about the NYS Assessments to provide.

Assessment information

Hybrid and in-person learners

This year only one day of testing (session 1) will be required for each of the 3-8 ELA and 3-7 Math exams.  Session 1 for both ELA and Math consists of multiple choice questions.  Our teachers have been working hard to ensure students are prepared for each of these tests.  

Students will complete both tests on the computer.  

  • Every Day & Day 2 Students: The ELA assessment will be administered in-person on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.
  • Day 1 Students: The ELA assessment will be administered in-person on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
  • Every Day & Day 2 Students: The Math assessment will be administered in-person on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.  
  • Day 1 Students: The Math assessment will be administered in-person on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.  

Fully remote learners

We will also be offering the opportunity for our remote learners to come into school to complete the test as well. Click here for more information. In order to plan for these assessments please fill out this Google Form by Thursday, April 15 stating if your child will be brought into school to participate in these assessments. 

Remote/hybrid students returning quarter 4

Any students returning on April 19 can sign up for a building tour after school during the week of April 12 (M, T, Th, F), please sign up using this form by Thursday, April 8.

I wish you all a safe, restful Spring Break.

Be well,

Mike Brannigan
