As juniors test away on the ACT April 19, seniors took advantage of the absence of their classmates to participate in an unofficial skip day. Many classes that normally host a majority of seniors were seen empty, if not near-empty, as tumbleweeds bounded down the hallways behind those that did come to school.

Mike Freedline’s fourth-hour Marketing I class, normally with approximately 30 seniors in attendance, saw one student show up to class.

The attendance office saw an influx of college visit permission forms, with dozens of the forms sitting in a stack on Attendance Secretary Stacey Enders’ desk. According to Enders, the office usually only receives a few per week at most.

This senior skip day comes in advance of the early release seniors will be allowed to participate in on May 4 after graduation practice.
