    Principal Corner Update MAP & SBA

    This spring, your child will take the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment (MAP) and/or the Smarter Balance Assessments (SBA) in Math and Language Arts.

    As our most valued partners in the education of your child, we want to ensure that you are informed in a timely manner of any required activities that may impact your student and family.​

    This year, part of the state and district testing window coincides with the observance of Ramadan. Seattle Public Schools are required to follow the state mandated testing window and cannot change the testing window. Our school’s testing dates within that window will be April 30th through May 31st.

    We want to meet every student’s needs for successful preparation and support them in doing their best as they take the state and/or district tests. For families observing Ramadan, please let your teacher know how we can best accommodate your student during this time.
    Thank you for continuing to work with us in supporting your child’s success. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to better support your child and your family. We want your child to leave Loyal Heights Elementary with a strong foundation of skills and a future full of opportunities.

    Principal of Loyal Heights Elementary
