BOOK EARLY FOR HOLIDAY TRAVEL!
2016-2017

Space can be difficult to find on airplanes at busy holiday times. We urge you to make reservations well in advance of school vacations to help make sure a student does not lose class time or graduation credits. Students leaving early or returning late receive lower grades and loss of credits.

We are sorry, but we cannot allow students to leave classes to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
