Weekend Leave

  • If a student wishes to leave campus for the weekend permission must be requested at least one
    week prior to the intended weekend departure.
  • Fill in the Weekend leave form and submit to the student services coordinator.
  • The process will require a letter of invitation from
    the hosting family and a letter of permission of the student’s parents/guardian.
  • Once these items have been received the student services coordinator will finalize the plans and permission.
  • It is important to note that transportation to the ferries or airport will be at the expense of the student.
