MCA Testing Information



The Minnesota testing season is coming up soon. Please click here for a letter about testing from our District Assessment Coordinator, Kristi Berlin and here for our school’s testing schedule.

InclementWeatherSchool may be cancelled when the Superintendent and/or Principal believe the safety of students and employees is threatened by severe weather.  A decision to close school will be made as early in the day as possible.  School closing announcements will be sent via the Infinite Campus Alert System, as well as broadcast on local television and radio stations and placed on media websites.  In the event the district does not close school and conditions in your area are bad, or you think it is unsafe, you, as a parent or guardian, should make your own decision about sending your child to school.  If you will be keeping your child home when school is in session, please call the school office and notify them of your decision.  Thank you.
