PSAT 8/9 Information

PSAT 8/9 Information

We will hold the PSAT 8/9 at LHS on the morning of Saturday, October 15th, 2022. The PSAT 8/9 is required for all 8th graders who will attend LHS. You are automatically registered for this test by being a student in an LHS feeder school.

We ask that students be dropped off at the LHS main entrance between 7:50-8:10 am to check in and receive their room assignment. We recommend carpooling as traffic will be congested. All students are to be seated in their assigned rooms by 8:15 am to begin testing procedures. 

Testing should be completed by noon; however, students receiving accommodations per an individualized education plan (IEP) or a 504 plan, may finish at different times. Students receiving accommodations will receive a letter prior to testing with more specific details about their accommodations.

Students who miss the test on October 15th will be contacted on Monday, October 17th with details regarding the test makeup. The makeup is typically the following Saturday morning.
