Letter to families about NYS exams
March 27, 2023
Dear JHS Families,
Please be advised that students will be taking the New York State Assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics after Spring Break. The testing window for each assessment is as follows:
- English Language Arts – April 19-21, 2023
- Mathematics – May 2-4, 2023
Each session will begin promptly after the morning announcements. Please be sure your child arrives at school on time. Bluehawk Academy students will take their assessments in the Junior High School with the rest of the students.
The English Language Arts and Mathematics Tests are untimed. Therefore, students will be given as much time as needed to complete them. Below is the average completion time for each grade.
|English Language Arts||Mathematics|
|Average Time to Complete Session #1||Average Time to Complete Session #2||Average Time to Complete Session #1||Average Time to Complete Session #2|
|Grade 6||80-90 minutes||90-100 minutes||80-90 minutes||75-85 minutes|

I thank you for your understanding in this matter and wish everyone a wonderful weekend.
Hudson JHS Principal
