The seniors leave for their trip on Tuesday, August 22, and all others depart on Wednesday, August 23. All four grades return by late afternoon Friday, August 25. Virgilla Gist, Assistant to the Director of Upper School, will email parents on Friday, August 25, with information about each trip’s actual return time. Please help us uphold our no-cellphone policy and ensure that your student leaves his or hers at home.
