On Tuesday, October 26th, BHS will administer the 2020 PSAT/NMSQT to all students in 10th and 11th grade during periods 1 - 4. We ask that you do your best to avoid scheduling appointments or other things that might disrupt your student's ability to finish the test. For information on prepping for the PSAT, please click HERE.

Students who attend Area 31 in the morning will not attend the Career Center. All students will be assigned a classroom at BHS where they will complete the PSAT Test.

PSAT Preparation

Throughout the week of October 4th - 8th, our Math and English teachers will help students prepare for the PSAT through mini-lessons. On Friday, October 8th, students will receive a hard copy of the practice test and are encouraged to take it home and review it over Fall Break.

Attendance and Homework Reminders

When your student is needed for pick up from school before 2:50 pm, please notify Mrs. Tewell as early as possible at or 317-852-2258 Ext. 1701. We will send a pass to the student’s class with their dismissal time. They will need to stop in the Team 2023 office to sign out, then will be dismissed to wait for their parent/guardian at Door #1. Please note that it is extremely difficult to find students once they get to the cafeteria for lunch. Some classes (like Choir, Band, Guard) are unable to answer phones during class. This may result in the student running late to their appointment, which we do not want to happen.

Please notify Mrs. Tewell at or 317-852-2258 Ext. 1701) by 10 am when your student is absent from school (due to illness or an appointment). Students are responsible for checking Schoology for missing work and contacting their teachers to see what they missed during the absence. Teachers can be messaged through Schoology or PowerSchool. Lastly, if a student misses school the day before and is aware of a test or quiz, students should expect to take the missing assessment the day they return to school.


Lanyards and IDs should be worn throughout the school day. Hopefully, our students are aware that if they borrow a lanyard prior to the 7:50 am bell it will not be logged against them. Please mention this to your student, and have them see Mrs. Tewell whenever they forget their lanyard. To replace a lost lanyard would be $5 ($2 for id, $3 for lanyard).

Academic Assistance

The best way to get help in a class is to contact the teacher for assistance. You can contact them directly by email. If you notice your student has any missing assignments in PowerSchool, please contact the teacher to get more information. You can find your student’s teachers’ email addresses hyperlinked on PowerSchool, or by accessing our staff directory on the Brownsburg High School website.

For additional academic support, contact Mr. Carlos Calero.
