College Visits

All students requesting to be excused for a college visit, MUST SEE your counselor PRIOR to the date of your visit in order for it to be considered an excused absence.  This is especially important for seniors with the attendance policy in place regarding unexcused absences and attending senior activities.

Ordering Transcripts

This is a reminder that the registrar and counselors need five school days to process a transcript request, letters of recommendation, college application and scholarship.  This is a busy time of the year so this deadline will be adhered to unless there is an extreme emergency.  Waiting till the last minute on a due date is not an emergency, so please plan ahead.
