Beginning Wednesday, June 5th, students have finals (sometimes a sit-down, sometimes a presentation or project) in the mornings of most days, and then are dismissed afterward. A special schedule will come out before. Students may choose to remain on campus until regular pick up, or spend the time reviewing or studying. Students who leave before 3:15 must sign out. Lunch is available each day.

Those athletes who will continue to compete at the college level will be recognized at a short gathering in the field house lobby….parents, students and faculty are invited!
A reminder that students may either be picked up after they are finished with finals or choose to stay on campus until 3:15 pick/up or buses. However, no students are permitted to leave campus and come back after (ie: walk to deli etc) due to safety and attendance/security reasons.
