Just a quick note to remind students, parents & guardians that Fast Track courses do not include Friday. That means students get 3 day weekends, even while taking additional course work during the summer. Sounds like a good deal!

July 8 – August 8 with Friday’s off each week. I’m sure you all need the extra day off, just to give your smoking brain a rest.

Enjoy your summer!
