Elkhorn Valley Schools is changing its mask mandate. As of March 15, masks will be recommended but not required in areas where social distancing can be maintained. When social distancing cannot be maintained (standing in line, doing group work, etc.) masks will be required.
Students in grades 7 through 10 at Elkhorn Valley Schools will be MAPS testing on March 15, 16 and 18. This is the Monday after we return from Spring Break and is also when Daylight Savings time goes into effect but due to calendar conflicts and activities, it was difficult finding a better time to get the testing done. Testing will begin immediately at 8:05 on these mornings. Please assist with this process by having your student get a good night’s sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast and have their laptop charged for the morning testing. Juniors at EVS will be completing the ACT prep on the mornings that the 7th through 10th graders are testing as they will be taking the ACT on March 23. Seniors will be with Mrs. Hahne during this time working on important Senior matters.
