The Cardigan Communications Office is here to help you and your family stay connected and well-informed about all the inspiring and important moments happening here on The Point and within the greater Cardigan Mountain School community.
The Communications Office uses a variety of digital tools to spread the word so each member of the Cardigan family can stay informed in the way that’s most convenient for them. This guide will provide an overview of Cardigan Mountain School communications—and the ways in which you can choose to engage in our vibrant program from wherever you are in the world!
Our Weekly E-Newsletter: To The Point
This fun and informative e-newsletter is distributed at least once a week while school is in session. Every issue contains stories about what’s happening here on campus and includes links to photo galleries, videos, and important resources like the “Plan of the Week.” All parents and students are automatically subscribed to To The Point.
Our School Magazine: Cardigan Chronicle
Published twice each year, this is the School’s signature print publication that provides feature articles and alumni class notes, updates on academic programs and campus projects, photographs from events that happen throughout the year, and much more. All enrolled families are automatically subscribed to the Cardigan Chronicle. You can see the feature articles from the most recent issue of the Chronicle on the Chronicle page.
Follow Cardigan on Social Media
The Communications team manages a number of social media accounts where we share all the moments that make the Cardigan experience so powerful and unique.
Student Image Use In Cardigan’s Media
Cardigan Mountain School frequently uses photographs of students in various publications, including our To The Point e-newsletter, the Cardigan Chronicle magazine, the School’s website and social media pages, and other school publications such as athletic programs, drama production programs, and so on. Parent permission for Cardigan to share these photographs and videos with our community is solicited and given via the 2021-22 general registration form.
Our Commitment to Privacy and Safety
As described above, Cardigan Mountain School uses photographs and videos of students in various digital and print publications. Generally, students are not identified by name in these communications. However, occasionally and when appropriate, students may be identified by name (usually in connection with the earning of an award or recognition.) The 2021-22 general registration form provides an opportunity to “opt-out” of identifying your son by name in all School media. If you have any specific questions or concerns about privacy, please contact Director of Communications Chris Adams (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Accessing Grade Reports Online
After each midterm and after each term ends, we’ll update progress or grade reports online. These can be accessed through our online Veracross parent portal. You may view your son’s grades at: https://portals.veracross.com/cardigan.
Your login will be automatically assigned by Veracross and will follow the convention of (preferred) firstname.lastname. If you forgot your password or if you have never logged in before, please reach out to email@example.com. New families will receive an email at the beginning of the school year with instructions for setting up your account. The links in these emails do expire after 2 weeks, and can end up in “spam” folders. Each individual family member must have an email in our Veracross database to have an account.
The first grade report will be posted here in October (after the fall midterm.) Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
