This year, Senior Week is June 8-15.

According to an announcement from the school system, attendees will learn beach and water safety tips, how to enjoy free activities for teens in Ocean City, how the Ocean City Police Department handles parties and what parents will have to do if their children are detained by police. Information will also be available regarding rental agreements, safety deposits, and “why parents may not want their teens to have cars or alcohol” during Senior Week in Ocean City, according to the school system.
