Special note re: college visits happening at Drake on Mondays: Please remember that you need to sign-up on Naviance two days in advance for Monday visits. The reason for this is because you will need a pass to leave class to attend these college sessions unless you have a free period. You will receive a confirmation from your counselor (from mailer@email.naviance.com) and this email is your pass. Your teacher has the final word as to whether they will let you leave class to attend.

 

Have a great weekend.

Lisa
