Briarwood Testing Dates

Please note these dates to ensure that your child is present, had breakfast and is on time for the appropriate testing.  Any student arriving after testing has begun will not be admitted to class until testing has completed for that day.  Students may not be dismissed from class during testing for any reason other than illness.  In addition, vacation requests will not be approved during the testing window.

We would appreciate your consideration of these testing dates as you make medical appointments and/or vacation plans.
