NOTE  The administration of make-ups is quite difficult as subs are NOT permitted to administer these assessments. Regular teachers will have to be released from their classes to give the make-ups. This is disruptive to educational programs overall. Trips, vacations, dentist and medical appointments should NOT be scheduled during your child's testing week.  Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated. If you have any concerns, please contact Mrs. Walsifer at 732-449-6380 ext. 428. Thank you!
