The events for parents and families on Tuesday, September 4 are not mandatory or required. We know that not all families can be present on Move-In Day - indeed, many students will be here without parents or families. We will make sure to post, on this page, links to resources and opportunities so that information can be shared with all families, so don't worry if you aren't able to be here on September 4.
Below you will find a brief outline of what you can expect, should you be able to join us on Tuesday, September 4.
