PHES 2024 SOL Testing Schedule

As we wind down the 2023-2024 school year, it is time to prepare for SOL testing. Please note the dates your student will be testing and help ensure they come to school prepared for success! 

  • Fuel the Body: Make certain your student has a good night’s rest before the test

  • Fuel the Brain: Provide a nutritious breakfast in the morning.  A free breakfast is available in all the school cafeterias each school day.

  • Arrive on Time: Plan for arriving to school on time so that your student does not feel rushed and can take the test with classmates on the scheduled day.

  • See Success: Make certain your student has any needed eyewear.

  • Take Their Time: Tests are untimed.  Avoid scheduling any appointments for your student on the day of the test and encourage them to take their time.
