  4. Parents must make the appointment. Students will not be allowed to make their own appointment.
  5. It is helpful when you call to be able to tell me what interests your child has so that I can match them to a suitable escort.
  6. Shadows will be escorted throughout the day by Sophomore/Freshman class members only—(no siblings).

On the day you shadow

  • Report at 8:15 am – to the IB office located in room 124 in the Main Hallway close to the clock tower entrance.
  • Bring lunch money - $4 minimum or bring a bag lunch.
  • Pick up at 3:15 pm – (the bell rings at 3:25 pm) in front of school at the flagpole on N. Central Avenue.

I will make every effort to accommodate you and your child. We are excited to welcome your child to the IB program and the Home of the Big Red.
