Seniors missed 263 classes last Thursday and Friday for confirmed college visits, Head of Attendance Gabriel Preciado said. However, in total 353 classes were missed, leaving 90 absences unconfirmed. The number of classes missed this year is much higher than the 287 classes missed during the same weekend last year.

“I think that the change is a result of seniors being better informed this year that they have the opportunity to get six days to visit colleges while only missing two days of school,” Preciado said.
