Dear Plaza Online Families:


As you were informed yesterday from the Park Hill School District, the State of Missouri Department of Education (DESE) is requiring that all online students complete the 2021 MAP state exam in person at their home schools


Plaza will be offering two options for online students to test onsite during our testing window. 


Option 1:  Families may opt to have their student test at Plaza Middle School on the same day and time as our in-person students. Families who choose this option must be able to provide transportation home each day at the conclusion of the morning testing period. **Students may ride their regularly scheduled bus route TO school if desired.**  Plaza will be testing during the mornings of  May 4-6 and May 11-13 from 7:15 to 9:15 a.m.  While all in-person students will be testing at this time, your online student will be placed in testing groups with only other online students. Upon completion of their testing period, online students will be dismissed for parents to pick them up at 9:15 a.m.


Option 2:  Families may opt to have their students test at Plaza Middle School on the days of Monday, May 17 and Tuesday May 18. These students will need to attend school for the entire school day from 7:15 a.m. - 2:10 p.m. Students choosing this option will be provided lunch and a mid-day testing break. **Students choosing this option will  have the option to ride their regularly scheduled bus route TO and FROM school if desired.** 


In order for Plaza Middle School to be able to provide a safe and secure testing environment, we need to have each family commit to one of the above testing options. A testing schedule is included below for you. 


Please complete a brief survey here in order to inform us which testing option your student will be using. Please complete the survey by Wednesday, April 14th. 


Sincerely,




Dr. Adrian Singletary, Principal- Plaza Middle School
