We have 34 students scheduled in our Maroon Lab and 14 in M213. Students are required to wear a mast at all times while moving. When sitting at a testing seat, since social distancing is possible, students do not have to wear his or her mask, but it is encouraged. All items such as pencils and earbuds are given to students as needed and we are not taking them back. Due to COVID-19 we are allowing each student to keep his or her pencil and earbuds. Hand sanitzer is provided in each testing room.

ATTENDANCE FOR TESTING
Before all testing, including retake windows, Ms. Naughton excuses each student on HAC by coding the periods students are to be testing with TB (Testing Elsewhere in Building). This shows teachers the day of testing that they are with her testing in the building. If a student does not report for testing they will be marked as Unexcused.
If students were in class, rather than in testing, students will need to have the teacher from each period the student was marked absent to either email Ms. Naughton or write a note which the student brings to Ms. Naughton stating that the student was in class. Once that is received the Unexcused will be removed.
