  1. Check with your current school for permission (school business).  On the day you visit we will provide you with a letter to take to your school.  This letter confirms your visit with us.
  2. Prior to calling for an appointment, check your child’s schedule. Choose a few dates that do not conflict with tests, field trips, presentations, etc. It will save all of us time.
  3. Parents must make the appointment.  No students will be allowed to make their own appointment.
  4. It is helpful when you call to be able to tell me what interests your child has so that I can match them to a suitable escort.
