Fall Family Weekend Health & Safety Protocols:

  • Masks are required for everyone indoors.
  • Unvaccinated siblings under the age of 12 should wear a mask at all times.
  • Dorms are off bounds to all guests regardless of vaccination status.
  • Once you have departed campus with your student, your student has begun his long weekend and should not return to campus until the end of break (October 27 for grades 6-8 and October 29 for grade 9).
  • In order to make this event as safe and inclusive as possible, we will arrange all meals and activities (aside from advisor conferences) outdoors.

Fall Term Long Weekend

Students may depart campus for Fall Term Long Weekend following their athletic commitment on Saturday, October 23. We encourage families to take their students off campus for the weekend, but given the ongoing risks inherent to public travel and our need to protect our community and program, we ask families to make long weekend plans that do not require students to use public transportation (planes, trains, busses, etc.) Further, we know that many students will not be able to go off-campus because of travel restrictions still in place. Supervision, food, and activities will be available for all students unable to travel. Please complete the Travel Form
