Family Weekend

Departing for the Long Weekend

Students are allowed to leave campus following their final athletic commitment or parent/student/teacher conference, whichever comes last. If your student will depart for the break following his athletic commitment, please be sure to check out with his coach before he leaves. 

If your son has athletic commitments on Friday and only conferences on Saturday, please contact the AOD at or 603.443.6252 to check your son out when the conferences are done and you are ready to depart campus with your student.  

If a student does depart before his last athletic commitment, he will need to use an excused absence.  

Returning to Campus

All students are due back on campus on Wednesday, February 6 by 9:00 p.m.

Travel Plans

If you have not done so yet, please submit your son's travel plans by completing the Winter Term Long Weekend Travel Form.

Medication & Supplements

Nurses are available if your son will need his medication or supplements for the long weekend. Contact the Health Center to make arrangements.
