State test scores for students who recently completed grades 3-8 are now available on the ARIS site: https://arisparentlink.org/parentlink

If you already have your child’s OSIS number (ID number) and password from previous years, you can gain access to the test results right away. For those who don’t have the OSIS number yet or if you forgot your password, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ana Crenovich, in the Main Office after Sept 4.
