MPORTANT NHSAS Info for Families
PHYSICALLY PRESENT STUDENTS ONLY will be taking the NH Statewide Assessment System test (NHSAS) in the month of April. Please see Manchester School District Superintendent Dr. Goldhardt's email below regarding NH State testing.
4-DAY REMOTE STUDENTS ONLY have the OPTION of coming into the Southside Middle School Library at 8AM on the following Wednesdays to complete the NHSAS test under staff supervision on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021; Wednesday, April 21, 2021; OR Wednesday, May 5th, 2021. If parents choose this OPTION available only to 4-day remote students, please email your child's ADVISORY TEACHER with your child's name and the Wednesday date you choose to bring your child into Southside Middle School building to take the NHSAS Test.
STUDENTS may choose to "OPT OUT" of taking the NHSAS test with parent permission by electronically returning the completed "NHSAS OPT-OUT FORM" at link(s) below to Administrative Assistant Judy Sullivan. Students who OPT-OUT of taking the NHSAS test will be required to independently complete subject assignments streamed in ALL of their assigned Google Classrooms with no "live" teacher instruction provided during NHSAS testing week because teachers will be required to proctor the test to "physically present" students ONLY in their physical classroom.
