Please note that all international students and student leaders should arrive to campus on Monday, September 2, 2019 after 5pm or on Tuesday September 3 before 12pm. Other new and returning students should plan to arrive on Wednesday September 4 from 10am-1pm. Please do not plan to arrive earlier than these time unless granted approval by the Dean of Students.

Faculty and staff are on-duty only during school hours, and not during vacation periods.  Except for Thanksgiving and February breaks when other arrangements can be made, students are not allowed to either remain on campus during a break nor return to campus prior to School’s re-convening after a break. 

Class time and other school appointments are the foundation of what goes on at school.  Yearly schedules are published well enough in advance so that the school expects all students and their families to adhere to our departure and return times.  If, however, you cannot avoid early departure or late return, you must make arrangements with the Dean of Students in advance of your departure.  Should you elect to miss a school appointment, or because you place a higher priority on other events, then you have chosen to accept the result of that decision.
