Here is how arrival works:
Arrive between 8:30 and 10:00 am
Come to Andrews Dorm (#61 on the map)
Park in the lot across the street from Andrews, next to Bennett Residence Hall (#58 on the map)
Come to the staff table in that lot and self-administer a rapid covid test.
If the test is positive, you may request a second test. If both tests are positive, we will have to ask you to leave and forfeit your spot at academy.
If it is negative, staff will give you a lanyard and allow you to move on to registration in Andrews Dorm.
Move car to lots H, E, or street parking
Unpack and organize room
Go to Walmart for any forgotten items
Attend Opening Ceremony in Blackwell Auditorium at 11:00 am (#16 on the map)

Report back to Andrews Dorm
Parents depart and students should be in their rooms by 2:00 pm
Please do your best to adhere to the above schedule. We have a saying at Latin Academy: "Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable." If something happens on the drive down, please call me at (804) 412-8409.
Remember to consult the checklists on the blog while packing and to leave behind any internet capable electronic device. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Finally, send the link to your friends and family.
The staff and I are very excited to meet you and convene the 2023 session of the Governor's Latin Academy. Until then,
Cura ut valeas,
