QUESTION: As canadians we can use the same POE to leave and then re-enter as visitors?
ANSWER: Yes, you are eligible to do so. But the officer at the port of entry will ultimately, decide to let you in or not. Remember you are given the privilege to enter the US, not the right to enter.
QUESTION: Can my kids attend school meantime?
ANSWER: If they are entering the US as visitors, when their intent is to be going to school, they are violating immigration laws. If their purpose of being in the US is to study, they should not enter on a visitor status. They should enter as students in student visa status.
