Below is the spring testing schedule for Chadron Middle School. As you can see, spring testing is a very busy time and scheduling all of the required tests takes us most of the month April. Student attendance is a key piece to helping testing run smooth. Grade levels are scheduled for certain tests during specific blocks of time during the day. When students miss their scheduled testing block, they have to make it up during the scheduled make up days, which means that they will miss class. This is not ideal, but necessary to meet testing requirements.
Spring Dental Days at Chadron Primary, Intermediate, and Middle Schools include dental screening and Fluoride Varnish Treatments are scheduled for the following dates and times:
Tuesday, March 28, beginning at 3:30 PM in Room 129 at Chadron Middle School
Wednesday, March 29, beginning at 3:15 PM next to the school office, Chadron Intermediate School.
Thursday, March 30, beginning at 3:15 PM in the Library at Chadron Primary School

We understand that some parents have children in different grades at CMS and that work schedules may be not be flexible, so these are only suggested times.
