Online Parcc (previous tests like CMAS/TCAP) testing has been conducted this week for many students at VSSA. We will attempt to complete these tests during class time, however there is a distinct possibility the make-ups will have to be in the mornings during normal training time. We have done this in the past and need to make sure we get every student tested.

There will be more information to come next week for who would need to come in. Coaches will be contacted and the Student-Athletes will be excused from training.
