Daytime Program – Schools

Daytime Program: 9:00am – 2:00pm
Information for visiting schools and students

SCHOOLS – register your students to attend the daytime program at Open House 2017. Please let us know how your students will be arriving to campus, and provide an estimate of the amount of students expected to attend from your school. Individual students are not required to register for the daytime program.

All registered schools will be provided with the full event program outlining all events and activities, as well as parking info, in advance of the event. This will help you to plan out your day if arriving as a school group, or you can provide the program to your students if they plan to attend the daytime program on their own, with their family or with friends.
