Hi there! I wanted to bring my snake to my exotics class for a day and I was wondering if that would be too stressful for him? I was going to set up a temporary enclosure with a small heating pad, a hide etc, but he'd have to be there from 8-probs 6

I would say the time span is way too long though, even with a temporary enclosure. Its pretty stressful for snakes to be moved into new situations and being out of their established enclosure would stress them too.

At work, we never bring them out of their habitats for over 4 hours (Thats not how long we handle them, this includes travel time and waiting).
