First block full remote starting at 8:00am.



7:30- PSAT Testing

For PSAT test takers: You will be marked as SCHOOL BUSINESS for attendance today. This is a present code and not an absence. You do not need to participate in any video conferences on Tuesday. Test takers are to arrive at school for 7:30 a.m. and can leave school upon completion of the PSATs (roughly 11:00 a.m.). Busses will be running per usual on Tuesday with normal pick up before school and drop off after school. If a student is to leave following the PSATs, they will need to have transportation. Should a student need to use the bus to get home, they will remain in the cafeteria until 2pm. We will serve lunch for students at the "middle lunch" time of 11:25. Students can be picked up any time after they finish the test.
