See for yourself what a difference a day can make.
If you are an eighth (8th) grade student considering your future high school, a Shadow visit is a great starting point as you can experience academic and student life first hand. Visiting students will spend the school day attending classes, having lunch, and maybe even catching a school-wide event, with an MOT Charter School student who has similar academic and/or extracurricular interests.
To get started, please submit your Shadow Day request below, if you have any questions please call 302-696-2000, option #2.
Here are some of the things you can expect:
Shadow day begins on your scheduled Friday with a parent/guardian arriving no later than 7:45 a.m. Parents will be REQUIRED to come to the front office to sign-in and sign-out their child, this is done for the safety of your child. It is recommended you complete the Shadow Visitor Release, you may download, complete and bring to school on your scheduled Shadow Day or forms are available at sign-in.
Visiting Students: will eat lunch in the cafeteria with their host and may choose to either pack a lunch or purchase the daily lunch special for $2.75. Although MOT Charter School has a dress code, Fridays are Spirit Wear days, therefore we ask that visiting students come dressed in khaki, navy or black colored pants or skirt and are free to wear a school appropriate shirt. Any shoe type with closed toes and closed heels is acceptable.
Current MOT Students: can wear any MOT spirit wear shirt and uniform pants, shorts or skirt for Shadow Day. You may use your funded lunch account to purchase lunch for the day.
Students MUST BE picked up at 2:00 pm. Shadowing students are responsible for their own transportation.
