EMHS College Visits schedule

How to plan a College Campus Visit

Juniors and Seniors are allowed (4) days for college visits each year. In order for these days to not be counted against attendance students must provide documentation of the visit.

  1. On the morning of the day of the visit, a parent should email or call the absence to the EMHS attendance office email memorial.attendance@edmondschools.net or phone: 405-340-2861.  After attending the student must provide documentation of the visit to attendance.
  2. Regarding proof of the visit:  The student will need to forward to attendance (memorial.attendance@edmondschools.net) the college letter received after the visit (this does not include a pamphlet or itinerary, etc., and does not include a confirmation of a scheduled visit stating “we are looking forward to your visit”).  The college may send a follow-up email or survey or provide a letter regarding the visit (“we enjoyed having you on campus“).  If the college doesn’t supply anything or email a “thank you for your visit“, the student may contact the college’s Admissions Office to FAX the letter to us at 405-330-7355 or email the letter to memorial.attendance@edmondschools.net.
