ATTENTION SENIORS – WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19 IS PSAT DAY FOR THE FRESHMAN, SOPHOMORE, AND JUNIOR CLASS. This is the perfect opportunity for you to arrange for a college visit. Parent notes for college visits for PSAT day must be submitted to the attendance office by the end of the school day on Wednesday, October 12. Teachers will begin marking attendance immediately after the PSAT is finished. This is generally during 4th period. Any senior that is not present for 4th, 5th, and 6th periods and does not have an approved college visit form in the attendance office, will be marked unexcused. Don't lose your exemption privilege for an unexcused absence. Seniors that will be on campus during 1st, 2nd, and 3rd periods, need to report to the auditorium for study hall during testing. Turn in those college visit requests by Wednesday, October 12. Remember – no approved college visit + unexcused absence = no exemptions this semester.
