    You'll get to see your plebe on Friday @1200 upon dismissal for liberty from Tecumseh Court..

    Schedule for USNA parent's weekend.

    As posted above, you won't get to be within touching distance of your Plebe until after the noon formation on Friday.
    However, you may be able to watch him (or her) marching in formation prior to liberty. IF you know where they're at in their company formation. Happy "Waldo Watching."

    This Internet address will show you when Plebes will have liberty, and when they have to return to Bancroft Hall...

    Noon Meal Formation

    You may get to see your plebe at the noon meal formation. It all depends where their company/platoon is lined up on T-Court.
    Cheers...

    Practices CAN vary from year to year. It is best to wait until you get the official scheduled from USNA for THIS year to know the exact plan. What they did/didn't do in some prior years may not be relevant.

    There is a link to official information on PPW including a schedule, on the usna.edu home page. Go here:

    http://www.usna.edu/SpecialEvents/PlebeParentsWeekend/

    Looks as if plebes have liberty starting Friday after noon meal formation. There are activities for parents on Thursday and on Friday morning. The Thursday activities are designed to give parents who arrive early something to do. If you're at USNA by Friday noon, you're in good shape in terms of seeing your mid. However, there are some worthwhile events on Friday morning for the parents. And you don't want to miss the noon meal formation!

    In answer to the OP's question, you won't be able to spend time with your mid until Friday afternoon. You may "see" (as in glimpse) your mid on Thursday but it would only be that -- a glimpse.
