Cell phones and electronic devices during testing days…

Dear Lower Lab Families Grade 3-5, 
Please be aware that cell phones and electronic devices (include smartwatches and E-readers) are prohibited by the NYS Education Department during the administration of state tests (including the ELA and Mathematics tests).  As a result, we encourage you to consider the electronic devices you choose to send to school with your 3rd-5th grader on testing dates.  
Any cell phones or electronic devices brought to the school during the testing period, will be collected in the morning prior to starting the test.  These items will be stored in the main office for the duration of the exam and returned by the end of the day. 
Thank you for your attention to this matter and for your support.
