Thursday, June 1, is a regular day of school but only morning classes meet. If your student has a Junior class they need to come on Thursday. Only Freshmen and Sophomores who do not have Junior classes are free to leave after their last appointment on Wednesday, May 31.
When all of your student’s classes are finished (on either Wednesday or Thursday), and their work commitments are done, their room is packed up and cleaned, and they have checked out with the deans, they are free to leave. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the deans for more information.
