FRESHMEN PARENT ORIENTATION
Description and Purpose
We realize that this step is an important one for parents and families that’s why is important that parents and families attend parent orientation. Because this is the first step to a very big transition to independence, to facilitate this transition, parents and students will have two very different schedules during orientation. You will begin with your students in a general session then parents and families will split up and attend a different orientation; you will meet up with your again at the end of the day.
