Families may register for their preferred date in Ravenna, but should do so promptly as spaces are limited. In accordance with the state and local guidelines and to maintain a healthier environment for students and staff in the building, only 25 students may register for the exam at a time. We have implemented the guidance that was issued by the state regarding the safety, cleaning and disinfecting of the school and will continue to do so throughout the school year. Please be aware that students entering the building for the exam are asked to complete a health screening questionnaire, temperature check, health and safety protocols and comply with mandatory face coverings/masks usage.

There is no fee for the examination, parents can simply bring their child on their scheduled day. The exam starts promptly at 9 am. We encourage you to arrive around 8:30am as temperature checks and safety measures will be completed upon arrival of the families into the building.
