October 24 Testing Day
The State of Illinois has made a change to state testing, making the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 mandatory for students to test in the spring to go along with the already mandatory SAT test taken by juniors on April 9, 2019. This means that our testing calendar has changed for October 24, 2018. October 24 will now be a day of attendance for ALL Students. Juniors will take the PSAT/NMSQT and freshmen, sophomores and seniors will be in class.
This day will be a 12:00pm dismissal for students.
The student planner is incorrect (it went to print before this change) and says a non-attendance day for seniors.
