FEBRUARY BREAK 2018 – INFORMATION FOR THE BOARDING COMMUNITY
Departure From Campus
Boarders are permitted to leave campus for the break after school finishes at 3:15 p.m. on Friday, February 16, 2018 and should have left campus by 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 17 (unless your child is on a school organized trip).
While we would expect your child to use our Boardingware system to have leave approved, an online form will be available soon so that you can send us details of the arrangements for your child(ren)'s travel. You may also send an email to Mrs. Gill Calton in the Boarding Office: email@example.com.
Please understand that we require timely and accurate information about your child(ren)’s travel in order to make the necessary arrangements. This information also includes their arrangements to travel back to campus, and is essential for their safety and well-being.
Shuttles will be run to London Heathrow on a regular basis on Friday, February 16 and on Saturday, February 17, 2018 if required. Students who need a ride to Heathrow Airport will be given the option to join a school shuttle at stated times. Students who need transportation at any other time will have to make their own arrangements. Shuttles are not run during the school day
