Dear Parents and Students,


This letter is to inform you of state testing on April 9th, 2019, at South Beloit High School.  On Tuesday, April 9th, 9th grade students will take the PSAT/9.  10th grade students will take the PSAT/10 and 11th grade students will take the SAT.  On this day, 11th grade students should arrive by 7:30 AM for breakfast and to check in.  9th and 10th grade students will begin testing at the beginning of the normal school day.  Regular classes will not take place on this day.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Bussing will be provided in the morning to school, and will not return to school until the 3:20 PM dismissal time.  Testing will end between 12:00pm and 1:00pm. Please make arrangements for your child(ren) to have transportation home.  We encourage the students to get plenty of rest the night before their test, as well as eat healthy foods when possible.


On April 9th, 12th grade students will not be in attendance.  Instead, 12th grade students will be required to job shadow, make a college visit, register for college, take part in a college orientation, take part in placement testing or perform their required community service.  Students will need to bring proof of their experience(s) on letterhead or an official statement from their place of occupancy to the office on Wednesday, April 10th.  Students not taking part in any of these opportunities will be issued consequences from the office.


The SAT is an Illinois state requirement for students to complete in order to receive a high school diploma, and students are required to be at the high school during their testing times.  These tests give the parents, staff and students the information they need to help cultivate our curriculum to provide some of the best educational experiences of their academic careers.  Students should view these tests as tickets to their future, opening opportunities with every point earned.  Please encourage your child(ren) to do the best they can to show what the students of South Beloit High School are truly capable of.  We thank you for your assistance and look forward to seeing the results.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the high school at 815-389-9004.


Thank you for the continued cooperation in the success of your student.
