Hello Parents / Guardians, 

Please enter your child’s arrival travel information by midnight Sunday, December 10th. Any travel requests or changes after this date will have to be arranged by the student/parents. 

It would be very helpful, for the coordination of student pick up/drop off, if a note could be made in the MySchool comments section that your child is bringing a bicycle, boxes, skis, or more than 2 bags of large luggage.

Early Leave or Late Return Requests

Requests for early leave or late return must be submitted in advance.

Extended leave requests—where the student is missing two (2) or more days of academic classes—should be brought to the attention of Deputy Head - Student Life Liam Sullivan ( Short leave requests—missing fewer than two days of school—should go to that student's Houseparent for approval. In the event the request is approved, the School will provide transportation, if available (charge applicable).
