What Are the Consequences of Dropping Some Second-Semester Senior Classes?

I'm thinking of taking a half day for spring semester of 12th grade, which starts in two weeks at my school. I have taken all my required classes for graduation and would be dropping two electives (AP Human Geography and Honors Sociology). The problem is that when I submitted my schedule/transcripts to colleges, I had four classes listed for spring semester (at my school that's a full day, we do block scheduling) and I'm thinking of dropping down to two. My counselor said some schools don't like to see seniors leave halfway through the day unless they're going to do a job or something. I'm not, I am just burned out. Will colleges consider it a lie on my applications that I said I'll be taking four classes if I actually only take two?
