End of Year Details
Closing the dorm and moving students out is an active and complex process. Along with departure dates (Seniors are expected to be out of the dorm by the end of the day on Saturday, June 5th, and underclassmen the following week, on Friday, June 10, 2022) we also include the process of packing and cleaning rooms, sorting items no longer wanted, supporting shipping of items that won’t fit in suitcases, and ensuring that records, medications, and other controlled items are accounted for. Please work with your son/daughter to ensure that they understand the need to be organized and efficient as we start asking them to take on these tasks.
For students returning to LA next year, we offer the service of summer storage of items on campus. Things must be boxed and well labeled. For anyone not returning, all personal belongings must be packed, disposed of, or shipped prior to leaving campus. These steps and dates are important to adhere to and with any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We have already begun to accept Orah requests for end-of-year departure and the sooner those plans are confirmed, the easier it is for us to plan the details.
