  • Peddie Chronicle readership survey: We need your help!

    Have you received the latest Peddie Chronicle? We are asking for our readers' input - please consider taking our 10 minute survey!

    We have partnered with CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) in a magazine readership survey to help improve the effectiveness of the Peddie Chronicle.
     
    Our online survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. You will be asked questions about the Chronicle, including several that allow for open-ended responses.
    If you have any questions, please contact editor@peddie.org. Thank you in advance for helping to make the Peddie Chronicle even better.
  • Long weekend travel request forms due MONDAY Jan. 23

    Please use the link to the electronic form below after reading the following information:
     
    Peddie will help with your transportation home each break in two ways*:
    1. We will provide shuttles to and from Newark Airport and Trenton Mercer County Airport.  We also provide shuttles to Trenton Train Station, which is a hub for Amtrak, SEPTA to Philadelphia, and NJ Transit to NYC.
      1. Fees:  $45 to and from Newark Airport; $30 to and from Trenton Train Station and Trenton Airport for the shuttle buses.  Car service to other airports is significantly more expensive, but those costs can be split when students travel together. 
    2. We will set up car service between Peddie and JFK, Philadelphia, and LaGuardia airports. 
    *If you are buying a ticket as an "unaccompanied minor," we will have to set up car service for you, as drivers of shuttle buses are not able to park and escort students in and out of the airport or train station. This is more expensive so if you/your parents can avoid having you travel as a minor, it is strongly suggested you do that.
     
    Do not email your flight info or travel plans. Do not have your parents email your travel plans! Instead, use these electronic forms to make your travel request, and I will be in touch with you next week with specific details about shuttle times. You must complete the forms by this Monday January 23rd.
     
    YOU MUST STILL FILL OUT A LEAVE REQUEST ON REACH! This is not a substitute for that. 
    Departure Request Form (If you need pickup after the break, click the link that appears after completing the form.)

    Arrival Request Form (use this form if you need ONLY arrival pickup and NOT departing transportation.)
     
    ***If you do not show up to your shuttle/car service without canceling your spot prior to the day of travel you will still be charged the full amount. 
     
    Please remember that dorms close at 5:00 p.m. Friday January 27.

  • Important Financial Aid Reminders for the 2017-18 School Year 

    Returning families applying for Financial Aid:
    Returning families who wish to be considered for FA for the 2017-18 school year must submit a Parents’ Financial Statement and updated tax information to SSS by January 15th, 2017. A detailed checklist of the FA process is available on our website.  Also, School and Student Services (SSS) is now accepting financial aid applications on their website (sss.nais.org). Complete your financial aid application for the 2017-18 school year here.
     
    Returning Students Requesting Aid for the First Time:
    For returning families who have not received financial aid in past years, you are welcome to apply by the FA deadline, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your financial need as no pre-existing budget is set aside for such expense.  If you intend to apply for financial aid, please contact us at financialaid@peddie.org.  If you longer wish to be considered for financial assistance, please inform us of that at financialaid@peddie.org.
     
  • Inclement weather information/Register for FalconAlert

    Information about delayed openings and cancellations will be communicated through our website (www.peddie.org) and through the FalconAlert text message system to registered cell phones. Since FalconAlert is character-restricted, we will use it to provide only brief information. More detail will be available through follow up emails and on our website.
     
    If you have not yet registered for FalconAlert register here.  Answers to frequently asked questions about the FalconAlert system may be found at http://falconet.peddie.org/rd/falconalert.
     
    There will be days of bad weather when it will be difficult for day students to get to school on time or to attend school at all, even if classes at Peddie remain in session. Day students are welcome to make arrangements to spend an occasional night in the dorm due to inclement weather. 
     
    We trust you, as our students’ parents and guardians, to determine whether it is safe for your children to travel to school. We urge you to err on the side of caution. If you judge the roads unsafe for driving please call Melanie Clements (609.944.7505) and your children will be excused due to weather conditions. Our faculty will work with your children to help them catch up on any work they miss as a result of weather-related absences.
     
  • Update on car permission

    If parents/guardians did not complete a permission slip or submitted one late, car permission for the student is designated to the most restrictive option. Extra car permission slips are available in the Deans' office.

    Students are expected to get written car permission from any faculty member before getting into a car, and must have their ID cards with them to request permission. Written car permission can only be given in person - faculty members will not text car permission.
  • Instructions for students wishing to sign out off campus (and their parents)

    Students: Please review instructions for signing out using Reach. Dorm supervisors will review the process with you this week.

    Parent/guardian: If your child is signing out for the weekend, you will receive an email requesting that you approve your child's plan.

    Once parent/guardian approves a student's leave, that student MUST click the green box underneath the SISO (Sign in/Sign out) widget. IF THIS STEP IS NOT COMPLETED, PARENT/GUARDIAN WILL RECEIVE A LATE NIGHT PHONE CALL.

    If your plans change, notify the dorm supervisor on the dorm faculty member on duty on Friday/Saturday night.
