Open Weekend/Home Visit Policy Resumes

Posted January 27

Beginning this weekend, January 29-30, boys are permitted to depart campus to visit home:

  • Boys may leave campus to spend time at their family home. Friend stays are not allowed at this time.
  • On Saturday, boys may depart campus after their athletic commitment and must return to campus by 7:30 p.m. Sunday night for Study Hall.
  • While your son is away from campus, please avoid public transportation and exercise good judgement (e.g. wearing a mask in public spaces, maintaining social distance, etc.) in order to protect the health and safety of our community when your son returns to campus.
  • As always, please make arrangements for a home visit in advance with Director of Student Life Nick Nowak.
  • When arriving on campus to pick up your son, please remember that all visitors must wear a mask, maintain social distance, and refrain from entering dormitories. Restrooms are available in the Kenerson Center (Development Office entryway.)

Student Care Package Dropoff Location

Posted January 18

We understand that many of our families would like to drop off care packages for students while our campus is closed to visitors. To accommodate this, while maintaining our current health and safety protocols, we have designated a drop off area and bathrooms for your use on campus.

Package Drop Off Instructions:

  • Packages can be dropped off at any time in the entryway of the Kenerson Center. Please clearly label the items with the student’s first and last name. 
  • If you have any questions regarding a package drop off for your child please reach out to our Parent Relations Manager, Christine Frazier at 603.523.3661 or


If you are making a drop-off or pick-up on campus and are in need of a restroom please use the restroom located in the Kenerson Center entryway (the men’s room is downstairs).

Kenerson Center Location:

The Kenerson Center (formerly the “Marrion Classrooms” building) is home to our new Development and Alumni office. It is located adjacent to the east, “windmill side”. It is marked as number 11 on our campus map which you can download here.

Spring Break to Begin One Week Early

Posted January 11

In recognition that our students and faculty will not have a normal mid-winter break, we will begin Spring Break one week earlier than originally scheduled.

  • Please complete the Spring Break Travel Form.
  • Your son will be able to depart campus after his last commitment on Saturday, February 26.
  • Ground transportation organized by Cardigan (the "Boston Bus," etc.) will depart campus Sunday morning, February 27. Additional details will be available soon.
  • We understand that some students will be unable to return home due to governmental travel restrictions and we are prepared to support those students on campus for the entire break. More information will be forthcoming from our International Relations department.
  • Spring Break will end as originally scheduled with students expected to arrive back on campus between 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. on Monday, March 28.
  • As in the past, we will require students to arrive on campus with a negative PCR test, and ask that families be thoughtful about their activities leading up to the return. Please plan accordingly.
