March 2022 News:
Earlier this year, we distributed the Annual Assessment Notification about standardized testing in our district. It included testing windows, but it was too early to share specific dates. At this time we wanted to make sure all families had the most current NJSLA Family Calendar 2022. As we get closer to the April dates, your child’s school will share additional information with you.
