HS Connect Ed Message – February 22nd

Hello.  This is Paula Husar, principal of Palmerton Area Senior High School.

The Biology Keystone tests are scheduled this week for students who had the Biology class during the first semester.  Last week, we met with the hybrid students to review the testing process.  These students also received a letter to take home to their parents. That letter was also e-mailed to parents using the e-mail address that we have on file in PowerSchool. The actual testing schedule was sent to the students through Schoology.  As a result of the school closing today, student’s should monitor Schoology for updates to the testing schedule.

The Keystone Literature tests will be given next week (March 1-4) to our hybrid students.  We will be meeting with the appropriate students this week.  They will be given a letter and the testing schedule information.  The same letter will also be sent to parents via e-mail.

For our virtual students who need to take the Keystone tests, information will released shortly.  Parents should be checking their e-mail and students should be checking Schoology for the information.  The tests apply to those students who had English or Biology during the first semester.  A copy of the informational letter would have been mailed home.  Unfortunately the school closure today prevented that.  Any parent of a virtual student who contacted us via e-mail about the testing process should have received a copy of the detailed letter as part of our response.   

Again, thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
