A brief power outage occurred towards the end of the PSAT/NMSQT on Saturday, Oct. 13, which may have affected scores.

Principal Jared McEvoy called a meeting and gave out a packet to explain the possible options a student may choose. Option one states the student was not affected by the loss of power and wishes to submit their original score for the Merit Scholarship.

Option two states the student feels he or she was negatively impacted by the event. In this case, the student may choose to submit his or her upcoming SAT score for the Merit Scholarship instead of the PSAT score. McEvoy plans to provide more information to the students who select this option.

No retakes for the PSAT will be given.

The filled-out packet indicating which option the student chose is due tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 27. All packets must be turned in in the main office.
