Conversation Pits

The two conversation pits located in the atrium outside the Guidance and Administrative Offices are available for student use before school, during breaks and in-between classes. They are not to be used during Commons periods. When students are using the “pits,” they are asked to keep the noise level at a minimum for the faculty and staff with offices in those areas.
