SENIOR FINAL INFORMATION QUESTIONAIRE
As graduation nears, there are several required steps that each senior must complete. There will be many deadlines that will need prompt attention - these deadlines will be shared with seniors through morning announcements at school, emails, homeroom teachers, with flyers, phone blasts and through the Remind App.
The first required step is for each senior to check their student email account and complete the questionnaire sent to them no later than Friday, March 27. Upon completing the questionnaire, the student will schedule an appointment with their counselor in order for the counselor to collect and validate the information shared in the questionnaire.
