IMPORTANT AP TESTING UPDATE: The College Board has released the 2020 AP Testing Guide . Please read through the guide with your AP student and follow the directions to prepare for testing at home on the test date and time. 

Students will still have the opportunity to earn college credit by taking their Advanced Placement exams this spring. The College Board is working to prepare exams students will take at home on their electronic device. Here is a link to information on the College Board website.  Some of the key details are 

  • Exams are at a scheduled day and time (see schedule below)
  • Exams are streamlined and limited to 45 minutes instead of the typical 2 1/2- 3 1/2 hours.
  • West students will be able to access the exams via their chromebooks.
  • Students may choose to handwrite or type their responses. Directions will be provided for both choices.
  • College Board will be providing specific directions, simulation videos, and opportunities for students to access the test portal before their test day. These will be provided to students in late April.

Your student's teacher contacted your student with specific information about the type of question(s) that will appear on this updated test. If you have questions specific to your student's test, please contact the teacher. For general questions about AP testing this year, please contact Heather Kangas, West's AP Coordinator. You can reach her at

I'm the school nurse for Perry Tipler, Alps and Oshkosh West. I realize with our unplanned temporary closing of school you may have some questions about medications or supplies left in the health office, general questions about school health, 504 plans, immunizations and/or questions about next school year. We are working through many things as each day goes on. However, please feel free to email me any questions you have and I will do my best to answer them. My email address is

Please continue to follow the Safer At Home order set by Governor Evers. For a great explanation of what that order really means please click on this link. Reminder: this means that your children should not be hanging out with other children that do not live with them.  

I hope that everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Please reach out to me if you have any questions. 

Mrs. Rebholz RN, BSN
