FSA Testing Information for 3rd, 4th & 5th grades

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

This year, all scholars in grades 3-5 will take the annual FSA (Florida Standards Assessment).  The testing period at Westwood Heights Elementary is fast approaching and it is important that 100% of our learners take their assessment on campus.

If you have a scholar who is currently learning from home, please know that it is mandatory for them to take the test on campus.  We will continue to follow safety guidelines by wearing masks and maintaining six feet of social distancing.  For your convenience, we have prepared the testing schedule below.  Please take a moment to review the schedule below and take the steps necessary to ensure your scholar is present on campus for all testing days.
