The lunch schedule, policies for arriving late, how to avoid detention and tips from upperclassmen for making the most of all were made a part of an orientation for incoming freshmen Thursday.
About half of the incoming class attended the nearly three-hour orientation, according to school administrators. The morning included tours of the building, a fashion show of suitable, and not suitable, dress for students, and ended with pizza in the cafeteria.
Seniors and juniors who are part of the peer mentoring program helped guide the new freshmen through the day. The mentors are assigned to homerooms, and provide younger students with a chance to ask questions or advice of another teen, rather than a teacher or administrator.
Some of the incoming freshmen said Thursday they are a little nervous about the size of the building, and are most worried about getting lost. Several also said they were confused about the alternating schedule for lunches.
Milford High School, along with all other schools in Milford, reopens for the 2012-13 school year on Aug. 28.
