Mead High School administration wants to consider community feedback when making important decisions.

We want our readers to know what PSAT/NMSQT testing will look like at MHS.

Any student who isn’t taking the test will work asynchronously (just like a normal Friday).

For students who are taking the test, they will start school at the regularly scheduled time (7:45 a.m.) and head to their assigned classrooms. They can find their classrooms listed on posters hung around the school. In assigned classrooms, students will receive further instruction from the assigned teacher and take their tests.

For group one (regular testing time) the test will end at 11:35 a.m., and for group two (the group with extended testing time) the test will end at 1:05 p.m. in the afternoon.

Busses will NOT run to or from the school midday like normal. However, there will be end-of-day busses that will run if needed, but students will be required to wait in the Commons until that time.
