Good Afternoon,

As a reminder, on Thursday, our 10th and 11th grade students will take the PSAT/NMSQT.  Testing sessions begin at 8AM and should conclude between 11:30 AM-12 PM.  A regular scheduled school day will immediately follow.  Learning at Home students may plan to arrive at 8 AM with testing beginning at 8:15 AM.  Once the assessment process is complete, they may leave the building.

11th grade students enrolled in the Jackson Area Career Center will be excused on Thursday if they are unable to attend due to testing.

Please review these important testing reminders:

  • Students should arrive on time to school, be sure to get a good night's sleep prior to test day, and eat a nutritious breakfast on the morning of the test.  Students may pick up a free breakfast at school.

  • Students may bring a bottle of water to leave outside of the testing area to access during breaks.  We will supply all students with a snack for testing.
