Who Do I Contact?
In an effort to put you in touch with the person who can really be of help to you, please use this list as a guide. We request that you not call our faculty or staff at home after 9:00pm.
All school email addresses are formatted as follows:
Administrator on Duty (AOD)
Please call on weekends, after hours, and/or in case of emergency: 203-788-4985
The advisor should be the first faculty member called if you have questions or concerns about your son or daughter. Advisors are responsible for monitoring the academic and personal progress of each student. Because faculty spends much of their time in classrooms and on playing fields, and many do not have direct extensions, it may be simplest to email them. If you have not heard from your student's advisor please contact the Dean of Faculty, Marie Gold (x1008).
