  • Announcements, student surveys, and other college related information 

College Visitation Policy 

Both juniors and seniors may take excused absences in order to visit colleges and universities. Juniors may take three visit days throughout the year, while seniors may take two. Parents should verify the student absence with the front office and the student should communicate with teachers in order to ensure work is not missed. Upon return from the visit, the student will need to turn into the front office documentation from the college verifying the visit before the college visit is official. Failure to turn in documentation will result in the visit day being counted as a personal day.
