PARCC Assessment and Bus Information

Dear Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School Parents/Guardians:

As you know, we will be administering the State PARCC Assessment on April 23, 24, and 25 (English/Language Arts), and April 30 and May 1 (Mathematics) at Indian Hills and Ramapo High Schools. Testing will begin promptly at 7:40 am, so please make sure that your child arrives to school on time. 

April 23, 24, and 25 – No Additional Bus Run – The majority of the student population (Grades 9-11) will be testing. 

Attention Juniors in AP English 3 and Seniors: Juniors who are taking the AP English 3 exam and Seniors will be the only students not testing for the PARCC English Assessment on April 23, 24, and 25, and they will not have to arrive to school until the testing is over.  If your Junior (taking the AP English 3 exam) and/or your Senior are regular bus riders, it is up to you to phone the transportation department by Tuesday, April 17 at 201-416-8100 - X3808 to let us know if your child will need transportation to school on April 23, 24, and 25.  

 

April 30 and May 1 – There Will Be An Additional Bus Run – Due to a portion of the student population that is not testing.

Attention Seniors and Exempt Testers - Grades 9-11 (see attached Math classes exempt from testing ): 

If your child is exempt from taking PARCC Math on April 30 and May 1 and is a regular bus rider, he/she will need to be at their regular bus stop according to the schedule below. This will assure their arrival to school for the planned start times.  

  • Monday,  April 30:    2 hours and 30 minutes after the normal bus pick-up time
  • Tuesday, May 1:       3 hours and 55 minutes after the normal bus pick-up time
