* Outside College Visits / Military Duties

Students are encouraged to visit colleges and perform military-related duties during non-school hours, but we understand that this is not always possible.  Any senior wishing to have the designation of ‘school business’ (SB) on their daily attendance when meeting with a college representative outside of TMHS during school hours MUST complete the form found in the Guidance office at least 3 days prior to the visit.  You will also be asked to provide documentation prior to and after the visit.

These forms are to be used when meeting with an individual.  They are not to be used for school tours.
