ELEMENTARY MAP TESTING IN JANUARY

From January 8-18, WYIS will conduct MAP® (Measures of Academic Progress ®) testing for elementary students only. We conduct MAP tests regularly throughout the year, and this mid-year test for Elementary will allow us to track students’ growth from the test taken earlier in the year. To learn more about MAP, please visit https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/ or contact your child’s teacher.

AIR QUALITY MONITORING

Part of keeping our students and staff safe is making sure they are breathing healthy air at school. School nurse Sue Fryer monitors multiple sites to get the best reading of air quality outdoors, and students are only released for outdoor activities if the AQI reading is appropriate. In addition to monitoring AQI sites, we also test the air with a physical air quality monitor. Indoors, every classroom is equipped with air purifiers to keep the indoor air clean. If you have specific concerns about AQI, please contact Sue Fryer or your child's teacher.
