Principal's Sunday Evening Message - April 4th

Good Evening Andover Star Parents,

This is YOUR Principal, Mr. Duncan with a rundown of what you and your students can expect this week over at Andover.

In our Cafeteria this week, we are serving “Almost Chick-fil-a” breaded Chicken Sandwiches on Monday, followed by Homemade Chili with tortilla chips on Tuesday. Wednesday’s menu is all about Mandarin Roasted Chicken legs with Chicken Nuggets on Thursday. We finish the week on Friday with Twisted Garlic French Bread Pizza.

Parents we’re starting our Florida State Standardized assessments (otherwise known as FSA’s) this week for grades 3, 4, and 5. 3rd Grade will be tested on April 6th & 7th. 4th & 5th Graders will be tested on April 8th. As you know, all state assessments must be done ON campus…however, if you have any health concerns OCPS is also not forcing anyone to bring their child to our campus. For LaunchEd students participating in on campus testing this year, I have a few notes that I’d like to review with you specifically.

As always, students will need to participate fully in our safety protocols of proper mask wearing, appropriate social distancing, and disinfecting/handwashing to keep everyone safe. Students should arrive in the front office between 8:45-8:50am. Our testing coordinator will meet them and they will be escorted to their test location. Families will need to provide us with a contact telephone number when they arrive in the morning with their students. Students may bring a snack and water; however, these items cannot be consumed during testing per OCPS testing guidelines. We are looking forward to seeing and supporting our Andover students during this testing season! Should you have any further questions, please contact your child’s LaunchEd teacher or email our testing coordinator, Mr. Salmons. His email address is [email protected].

Remember that to accommodate our testing requirements this week Wednesday, April 7th will NOT be an early release Wednesday. We will dismiss at 3:00pm.

AND that’s all I have for this Sunday...I hope you enjoy what remains of your weekend, and have a VERY stary night. Goodbye for now.


Mr. Kevin J. Duncan MA Ed.
