We will begin testing at 8:00 AM each morning. It is important that students arrive on time to ensure they are prepared for testing. Once testing begins, students who arrive late will not be able to participate with their peers and will be assigned a make-up day for testing. 


To prepare each day for testing, please ensure that your child:

  • gets the appropriate amount of sleep the night before the assessment.

  • has a healthy breakfast.

  • arrives at school between 7:15 and 7:45 AM the day of the assessment.


You will be able to access your child’s Individual Student Report at the end of the testing window in the Parent Portal of PowerSchool.  If you have questions about EOG testing, please contact me at 919-560-3972.
