Lunch: Guests may enjoy lunch on campus in our Athletic Center or take their grandchildren/special friends to lunch offsite. There are a number of restaurants within minutes of campus to choose from, including:
There are also several restaurants in Dover, NH (10 minutes away) or Portsmouth, NH (30 mins). 
Upper School students must return to campus for afternoon classes and athletics.

Parents: Interested in volunteering?
Each year, we welcome approximately 500 guests to our campus for this event. In order to make the day run smoothly, we ask for volunteers to help with setup on Thursday afternoon, and most of the day on Friday.  

If you're interested in helping out, please visit SignUpGenius and indicate the specific task(s) and time(s) you wish to volunteer. Thank you in advance!

Student Drop-off & Parking:  Guests will arrive between 7:30 - 9 a.m., so we need everyone's help to ensure a smooth and easy student drop-off. 

All of the morning festivities take place in the Athletic Center, so please drop your child(ren) off before the bus stop near the Lower School or at Fogg. This helps to alleviate bottlenecks in front of the Athletic Center.

All spots in front of the Athletic Center are reserved for handicap parking. The Lower School and Fogg lots will also be reserved for guest and faculty parking. Students will need to park on Academy Street and are encouraged to carpool or get dropped off.

For students parking on Academy Street: Maine law states you cannot park within 10 feet of a fire hydrant. You must also leave driveways and crosswalks clear. Please obey all posted signage to avoid getting a parking ticket.
