I am just wondering why other elementary schools in this area(barboursville & huntington) went to the Keith Albee today to see the Rugrats today and the children at salt rock did not? this seems very unfair, I have grandchildren at Ona elementary and Nichoals elementary and they went. They went on school buses and got lunch out also. Anyone with the answer? Salt Rock is a very good school.

About the tests

The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia.
