WHAT ABOUT SENIORS?  Traditionally, seniors have used this day for college andcareer preparations.  This is a good day to visit colleges and potential career sites and work on their college application.  Seniors may also decide to come to school to complete work and should report directly to Student Services.  Due to testing, the Media Center computers will not be available on this day.  If you plan to be absent to work on college and career prep, please complete the discretionary absence form and return it to Mrs. Reardon in the Front Office.
