  • Students are required to stay in the final for 1 1/2 of the 2 hours.
  • Upper School students do not have to be on campus when they don't have a final. They may leave between finals and/or when they are done for the day.
  • Parents may pick up their child in between finals and/or right after a final.  
  • ACTION REQUIRED: For students in 7th-12th grade who want to leave campus between finals and/or right after a final,  -- because they drive, because they want to walk to Head's Store, or because they want to ride with another student/adult -- parents must send in written permission to the office. Parents must  to let her know if their child has permission to leave -- this only applies to Finals WeekNote: If your 11th or 12th grader already has a "Leave Campus" form on file with the office for the school year, that is sufficient approval for Finals Week.
  • It is each student's responsibility to be back in time for the next final if he/she chooses to leave midday.
  • All students leaving/returning midday need to sign in and out at the office.
  • The school office cannot monitor with whom students actually leave campus; that will have to remain between the parent and the student.
  • There will be no morning meeting on Thursday or Friday.

Please  and we will be happy to provide that structure for your child.
