College Day Visit
An absence incurred due to visit to a college campus is permitted. Juniors are allowed one day and Seniors two days. College days will not count against Juniors or Seniors for exemption purposes. All college visits must be approved by a principal at least 2 weeks in advance. A college visit form needs to be turned in to the PEIMS office upon the student's return to school.
