QUICK START KICKS OFF IN AUGUST
Mark your calendars -- Quick Start Registration will be August 26th, 27th
, and 28th
. Quick Start for incoming freshmen will be on Thursday, August 27th. At Quick Start, students will pay school fees, receive their class schedules, gym uniforms, and textbooks, and will take their student ID and yearbook photos. Quick Start forms will be posted in July at this link
Students who are unable to attend Quick Start on August 27th should make arrangements to send a trusted individual to Quick Start on their behalf. This person will need all of the Quick Start paper forms completed or proof of online completion. This person will be able to go through most of the stations for your student. They will be able to pay fees, receive your student’s program, pick up purchased items, and receive textbooks; however, they will not be able to go through the “ID” station & “Yearbook” station. Your student will have to listen to the announcements regarding makeup dates for ID pictures. Students who do not attend Quick Start or send someone on their behalf are subject to a late fee (full details will be posted along with the Quick Start forms in July).
