  • Leaving & Returning to Campus

Whenever a student will be absent from campus overnight, he/she must fill out the Weekend/Weekday Survey on REACH.

If the student is missing any classes or commitments, sports, etc., a Missing Class Form is also needed. This form can be obtained from the Dean’s Office. If the absence is due to a college visit, the form must be obtained from the Director of College Counseling.

Completed Surveys and Missed Class Forms must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon in the case of a regular weekend.

Students who submit information after the deadline may receive 3 marks per day of lateness.
The penalty for leaving campus without submitting the required information is a core infraction. Students who leave campus without permission face the Discipline Committee.

Anytime a weekend leave or overnight absence will cause a student to miss a class, rehearsal, or practice, the teacher/director/coach must initial the form to indicate approval.

Please Note: Sometimes the need to take a weekend arises suddenly, urgently, and unexpectedly. In such cases the penalty for lateness usually is waived.

However, any weekend requests arising after Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. must be directed to the head of the Weekend Duty Group for that weekend. By so doing, you are assured that the information will be forwarded to the faculty on duty for that weekend. 

If you have any questions about these procedures, please direct them to Dean of Students Matt Carroll.
