College Visits

Each senior is allowed one college day during the senior year. Students are required to submit a parent note to Ms. Ferguson in the main office at least 2 days BEFORE going on the college visit. During the college visit, students should ask an Admissions representative for a letter or other paperwork indicating that the student participated in a visit to the college/university for attendance purposes. Students should then turn in this letter to the main office to excuse the absence.
