Student Shadowing

Below are the directions/instructions for students who would like to spend a day shadowing at Mainland. Please read all of the following information BEFORE signing up to shadow 

  • Shadowing is only offered to students currently in 8th grade 

  • Students must sign up through the link below. There are limited spots on each available date.  

  • As of right now we are only offering datein November and December. Later in the year we will offer dates in the Winter and Spring so please check this page throughout the next few months. 

  • Once you have signed up, we will send you a confirmation/reminder email a few days before your shadowing date 

  • If you write that you have a Mainland student to shadow with, please confirm with the Mainland student they are able and willing to shadow with you on that specific day. This is very important as we notify the Mainland students’ teachers that there will be an extra person in their class that day.  

  • Students must be in class by 8am. If they are meeting their shadow at Mainland (some students get dropped off together), we suggest getting to Mainland around 7:45am and they can meet in the Main Office. The dismissal bell rings at 2:39pm.  

  • 8th grade students are responsible for their transportation to and from Mainland on their shadow day. 

  •  8th Grade students can stop by the Guidance office with their shadow to receive a note excusing them from school for the day.  

  • 8th grade students are welcome to bring their lunch or bring money to purchase lunch.  

  • When the student signs up, please make sure it is the parent’s email and phone number entered, so we then have the emergency contacts information on file if needed.  

  • Any specific questions you may have can be emailed to Christina Urbon, Freshman Transition Counselor at [email protected]
