We're back!!!  It's hard to believe the summer has flown by.  May and August HSA scores are in.  Parents and students can contact Cheryl Novotny at (240)236-7041 or to check on scores.  Retesting for students who still need to pass any HSA will take place the week of October 1st, 2012.  Students who have met the combined score are encouraged to test so that failing scores do not show on report cards or transcripts.

Any student wishing to retake any of the High School Assessments this summer to earn a passing score can obtain a form to sign up in the FHS Guidance Office.  The H S A tests will be given through Summer School the week of August 6th, 2012.  (The specific dates are still tentative, but students will be notified of the dates by the Summer School office once registered.)
