ALL Parents must SUBMIT an ABSENCE REQUEST FORM on the Parent Portal. Log in to the Parent Portal, select “Forms and Documents,” and "Absence Request Form.” If a change of plans arises during the break, please submit a new permission request form and include a note in the comment section to indicate that this is a change to a previously submitted form.
For students who need to depart late on March 9 and/or return early on March 23, permissions will be granted through the absence request form on the parent portal.
Click here for more information about student bus transportation to the Wassaic Train Station and area airports available on March 8 and 24. Bus reservations are available for purchase through the OneCard Portal until February 28.
UNACCOMPANIED MINORS: If your student is not 16 years of age and is traveling by air, we suggest that you check with your travel agent before booking flights to see if any restrictions are in place with respect to underage children traveling alone. Some airlines have more restrictive policies than others and demand a higher level of services for unaccompanied minors. Please note that the School does not provide escort services to or from airports. If you need special services, please call one of our area car services to make arrangements. If you have any questions, please call the Deans’ Office at (860) 435-3739 or, after hours, the Dean on Duty at (860) 435-2591.
Transportation questions may be directed to Laurie Grusauski at (860) 435-3614.
Hotchkiss is proud to host numerous parent events, both on and off-campus, throughout the year. These gatherings are designed to engage and connect you with fellow parents and the School. We hope you will plan to join us!
Get Involved: Parent Volunteer Roles
Parent volunteers are critical to the success of our programs. Volunteering is a great way to connect with other families and to stay informed about the exciting things happening at Hotchkiss.
Find out more about our various volunteer roles here.
Questions about events and volunteering may be directed to Director of Parent Programs Johanna Haan P'14,'16 at (860) 435-3121.
