Fall Family Weekend 2021

We are looking forward to seeing as many families as possible for Fall Family Weekend 2021 at The White Mountain School. This year, we are offering a combination of in-person and remote (via Zoom) options to make it easier for families to participate in as many activities as possible. Programming has been condensed to fit entirely on Friday, October 22, so students will be free to depart when Friday evening programming is complete. All students will need to leave campus for Fall Break by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 23.

COVID rates of infection are low in northern New Hampshire. However, due to the uncertainty that remains, White Mountain is offering visitors an in-person agenda (Plan A) and a remote schedule (Plan B) if we need to cancel. We plan to preserve our normal programming, requiring everyone to wear masks indoors for the day. If we need to go to the remote schedule, families may pick up their children after 2:00 p.m. on Friday.

Transportation plan forms will be reposted for families within myWMS. School shuttles to public transit options (plane, train, or bus) will be available on Saturday, October 23, only. As there will be no on-campus programming for Saturday, we have added additional earlier transportation options to the airports in Boston and Manchester. For questions, please email Angela Callahan at angela.callahan@whitemountain.org.
