We went for open house visit, thinking son's status was 'HOLD'.
Checked with someone, who said 'No. He's been an alternate for quite a while', but list was not current.
Verified with admission, Nope. 'Principal'.
ME: "no. No, I think his status is Hold".
Admissions: "No sir, my list is accurate as of today, he is the principal"
OK. So, the little imaginary guy sitting on my shoulder is saying "Don't contradict the very nice admissions person who is standing in front of you saying 'You're kid is IN'. Say 'thank you very much for this information', smile, go find your kid and have HIM ask and get the same reply.. The batteries in the camera ARE charged, aren't they?" Sheesh. sometimes parents can be SOO dense.
I'm not proud of it, but it IS what it IS.
The staff have been exceedingly nice, helpful, and understanding. Some things take time gather, organize, confirm, publish, etc.
Call (kid, not parents) any admissions contacts you'd like... they have been the most informative and understanding group I've run into in a while.
