Students may check with Barbara D’Iorio in the Head of School’s office for airport transportation information, flight schedules, and train and bus schedules. Please consult the Student-Parent Handbook for complete information about travel to and from school.
|No student should expect to leave early or arrive late at vacation times without permission from the Academic Dean, Dean of Students and/or the Head of School. Such permission is granted only in exceptional circumstances. Any classes missed before or after vacations are considered class cuts, with the normal consequences.|
Boardingware is used to manage weekend requests and vacation/ break travel. This system replaces the Travel Form previously accessed through the School website. Parents can access the Boardingware system via App or web once their student's account is registered. When you receive the email invitation from Boardingware, please follow the simple registration process.
Flights should be booked to allow ample time for students to get to and from the airports. JFK and La Guardia Airports are two hours from school, Newark Liberty Airport is 2 1/2, and Hartford's Bradley Airport is 1 1/2 hours. A travel day is built into most breaks so parents may book flights at that day if necessary.
Parents are encouraged to make arrangements directly with one of the following car services:
Students wishing to take the Metro North train line to and/or from New York City are transported to and from the Ten Mile River train station by faculty drivers. There is no charge for this service if your child departs and/or returns at the specific train times designated below.
Students leaving or arriving at times other than those designated must arrange taxi service to or from the train station. Please convey any information about alternate departure or return times to Barbara D’Iorio (860-927-0047 x1003) or the Administrator on Duty (203-788-4985).
Please note: Train times are subject to change without notice. Please routinely check the Metro North schedule

Inclement Weather and School Closings/ Delays
|Winter is here! When the school is closed or classes are delayed, a text alert will go out to families by 6:45am. It will also be posted on the website. Local families are always encouraged to use their best judgment in driving their student to school. Students will not be penalized for missing class or being late due to weather-related issues. If you have not received a text from the alert system this year, please contact Heather Hastings to add your number.|
