  • Attention 8th graders! The Writing SOL begins TOMORROW — and there are a few things you need to know. When going to your testing locations, you will NOT be allowed to bring your backpacks, water, snacks nor ANY electronic devices — including phones, iPads, gaming consoles, smart watches. or anything else. But you SHOULD bring a pencil or pen, and a BOOK to read in case you finish early — but again, no electronic readers. If you are not sure where you’re testing, just ask your TA teacher or check the postings outside of the cafeteria and library. Good luck on the SOL, 8th graders!
