A note from our Superintendent on State Testing

April 10, 2021


Dear Falcon Families,

Oklahoma State Testing will begin for our students at Friend School next week.  Our virtual students have tested this past week.  We need your help, please!  It is important to have your child in school each day well rested from a good night’s sleep.   

It is also very important for students to arrive on time.  Test sessions will need to begin as scheduled each morning to allow students enough time to do their best.  Once the testing has started, students cannot enter the session.  There are no electronic devices ( such as cell phones or smartwatches) allowed in the testing areas.  The students may bring a bottle of water to have during testing.  

We believe our students have learned a lot this year.  It is amazing how well-versed they are with utilizing technology.  Our teachers have worked very hard to keep everyone connected through Google Classroom,  Zoom calls, and anything else they believe will help the students.  

Our students have learned many life skills such as being flexible, resourceful, a collaborative team member to mention only a few.  You have also seen the skills they are learning through the various subject areas.  We want to thank you for the critical role you have played in helping your child/children as we have faced the challenges of the pandemic together during the year.

There are several resources on the Oklahoma State Department of Education website you may find helpful if you would like more information on testing or practice for your child.  Practice questions can be accessed by visiting https://okpracticetest.cognia.org/student/login. A guide for students, parents, and teachers can also be accessed by visiting Parent, Student, Teacher Guides (PSTGs).  Please feel free to call our office should you have any questions about testing or issues locating these resources.

Testing will begin Monday, April 12th, and will end May 7th.  

Thank you for your help in making sure your child/children are here on time and ready for testing!
