 A student is permitted to leave campus for these long weekends only if his or her team does not have an athletic contest scheduled for Friday or Saturday of the weekend. An Activity Weekend begins on Friday at 1:00 p.m. Please consult the athletic schedule well in advance to avoid conflicts.

 

ACTIVITY WEEKENDS:

A There are no Saturday classes on these weekends. Instead of classes, a  variety of educational and recreational activities is scheduled.

B. During the week prior to an Activity Weekend each class meets Monday through

Friday without skip-days. Extra help sessions and supervised study halls are incorporated into the schedule.

C. A schedule of planned activities for the weekend is announced in advance at a School Meeting. Day students are sometimes invited to participate in the activities scheduled for an Activity Weekend. Day students should inform the office if they will be participating.

D. Students may leave campus Friday afternoon of an Activity Weekend provided their departure does not conflict with an athletic commitment.

To avoid last minute planning that can lead to confusion, please contact Julie Fredlund (jfred@rumseyhall.org or 860-868-0535 ext. 109) in the school office with weekend permission by noon Thursday. Failure to do so may jeopardize your child’s ability to leave campus.

SATURDAY STUDY HALL ON ACTIVITY WEEKENDS: Students assigned to Saturday Study Hall will be required to attend a supervised study hall from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. in order to make up missed assignments and complete Monday’s homework.

All Activity Weekends End Sunday Evening by 7:00 p.m.
