Students who have registered for the High School Media Workshop or who have been accepted on a scholarship must complete the Pre-Arrival Packet by July 6th, 2018.
These forms include items which require attention from both students and parents including a medical and photo/video release form, information about the one free hour of college credit available for eligible students as well as the Workshop Behavior Expectations. These forms are relatively short and we ask that you complete them together. Click on to complete pre-arrival packets for HSMW 2018.
