Come celebrate the creative talents of an inspiring group of students as they offer up paintings, sculpture, videos, photographs, drawings and installations, all beautiful to behold. Reception begins at 6:30 p.m. and light snacks will be served.
Peddie will help students with transportation home for break in two ways:
Peddie 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.
We will set up car service between Peddie and JFK, Philadelphia, and LaGuardia airports.
If 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 travelling as a minor can be avoided, it is strongly suggested you do that.
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.
Do not email your flight info or travel plans. Do not have your parents email your travel plans! Instead, use these electronic form 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 Wednesday February 22nd.
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 by 12 noonSaturday March 4 and reopen on Sunday, March 19 (Spring term classes begin on Monday, March 20).
Winter term exams will be held from Tuesday, February 3 through Friday, March 3. Students should check schedule to determine when their exams will be held. Dorms close on Saturday, March 4 at 12:00 noon and will reopen on Sunday, March 19. Spring term classes begin on Monday, March 20.
Every year Peddie runs a CoatDrive for the needy. If you have any coats (men's, women's or children's that are clean and in good repair) which you would like to donate, please put them in the barrel marked COATDRIVE located outside the Headmaster's Office.
The drive will continue throughout the winter term.
For those of you who would like to be considered for financial aid for the 2017-18 school year, we want to remind you that the NAIS website is open so you can:
complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (due January 15th)
submit your 2016 W-2s (due by late January)
submit your 2016 federal tax return w/ W-2s and all schedules/statements (due Feb 17th)
Your complete 2015 return should already be on file at SSS
You can find a detailed FA checklist w/ links to the SSS website on our website (Admission/Affording Peddie). SSS extends their hours during this season and has a very helpful hotline at 1.800.344.8328.
Once we have wrapped up our incoming class on April 10th we will begin to send out financial aid awards to returning student families in late April. These evaluations are made based on when all of the required paperwork is posted on SSS. Families who complete the financial aid application sooner will hear back from us sooner.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org . If you longer wish to be considered for financial assistance, please inform us of that at email@example.com.
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.
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.
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.
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.
