PSAT at Paly; Why not day off for other students?

Original post made by Parent, Palo Alto High School, on Oct 17, 2019

My son attended Paly on PSAT day (for Juniors) because the schedule for the other grade levels was 12:30-3:35, 55 minute classes. However, he was told there were no instructional minutes so the teachers did not teach. Why didn't Paly allow the other grade levels a day off? This was high school daycare! Next year, the students need not attend school on the PSAT day!
