One parent should come with you – yes, Senior, you should attend!

Late Start

Each Wednesday, you (all grades!) get to sleep in a little! Your first class starts at 8:45 instead of 8:10. You must be in your class and ready to go at 8:45. If you are late, you need to sign in with the QR Code.

You are more than welcome to be here earlier! If you do arrive before 8:45, just sign in with a QR Code in a common space, Deans’ office or at the front desk. You may hang out in any common space or the library.

Tillman Center Announcement:

Upper School Students are not allowed in the Tillman Center when Middle School Students are using it. Middle School finishes lunch at 11:55. Most of the time there are many Upper School Students either going in or lined up right at the door, waiting to get in before 11:55. PLEASE do not be on the ramp going down to the Tillman Center. Wait in Lampkin Plaza, go wash your hands and grab your lunch. Let’s give the Middle School Students room to leave! Thank you for your help with this!

Please wear your mask when you go into the Tillman Center and while you wait in line. You may take it off when you get to your seat to eat.

Tillman Center Snacks Available during these times:

Monday: 9:45-10:10
Tuesday: 9:45-10:10
Wednesday: 10:10-10:30
