EOGs Are Coming!
Every year, all Lake Norman Charter Middle School students, grades 5-8, are required to participate in North Carolina End of Grade (EOG) Testing. This year's EOG tests will be administered on Tuesday, May 22, Wednesday, May 23 and Thursday, May 24. School will operate on a REGULAR SCHEDULE on these dates and it is VERY IMPORTANT that your child arrives to school on time each day. LNC prides itself on providing ALL students with conditions most conducive to successful testing. This is a vital part of providing a fair opportunity for EVERY student to perform his or her best. That being said, please understand that students WILL NOT be allowed to check out of school prior to the end of the testing session. 

If you anticipate the need to check your student out early on any of these 3 dates, PLEASE plan to take advantage of the Make-Up Sessions which will be offered as needed on the school days including and immediately following May 24. A grade-specific test schedule can be found below.
