Important information regarding psat and all students on 10/13
The PSAT-NMSQT will be administered on Wednesday, October 13th to all 10th grade students and to 9th and 11th grade students who paid to participate. Most students will test in their homerooms. Signs will be posted around campus to help students locate their test room if it is not their homeroom. All students will need to know their complete home address including zip code, an email address and/or mobile number if they would like early electronic notification of their results, number 2 pencils and an approved calculator (scientific or graphing). We also recommend bringing snacks and water as lunch will be later this day. It may be helpful to write this information on an index card and bring it to testing. Students with College Board approved accommodations are reminded that they should be in their assigned rooms by 8:00 a.m. to begin testing. Students with these approved accommodations have been notified. Parents, students cannot be released from testing rooms until all testing materials on campus have been picked up and secured. Please plan accordingly if your student will need to leave early. College Board does not offer an opportunity to test from home. There is no test make-up day. Testing will be complete at approximately 1:30 p.m. and students will be released to lunch at that time. Buses will pick up at 2:50 p.m. Wednesday dismissal time. 9th and 11th grade students who have not paid to participate in the PSAT-NMSQT and Seniors not taking the SAT NCR are eligible to use this day as an at home schoology learning opportunity. Students who arrive late (after testing begins at 10am) and those who choose not to use the day for at home learning will attend a study hall in the cafeteria.
Please contact PMHS Testing Coordinator, Beth Purtill at [email protected] with questions.
The PSAT exam is an important upcoming assessment for high school students on Wednesday, October 13. As a reminder, the PSAT is for ALL 10th grade students as well as 9th or 11th grade students who have paid to take the exam.
Due to current health guidelines, we want to create a spacious testing atmosphere in the classroom. This makes it difficult to provide a learning space for students who are not participating in the PSAT or SAT NCR (Seniors only). To ensure both student safety and the optimal testing environment, we will allow flexibility to students on this day. High school students who are not participating in the PSAT or SAT NCR may complete assigned work from home or at school on this day. Assigned work will be due on Thursday, October 14th.
