Private School Shadow Days


As a courtesy,  we are sometimes able to offer a limited number of shadowing opportunities during the 2nd and 3rd quarters only of each school year for 8th graders currently attending a non-SMSD school.


If approved to shadow:

  • The 8th grade student will shadow a Link Leader assigned by SME.
  • We are unable to honor requests for students to shadow a specific SME student. 
  • The 8th grade student will shadow only on a date listed on the request form and only during the times listed on the request form.
  • We are not able to offer shadowing opportunities during the 4th quarter because our students are taking and preparing for a variety of exams and are also involved in many end-of-year activities.

Thank you for understanding that we are not able to deviate from these arrangements.
