Coronavirus Updates

We at New Hampton School are excited to welcome reunion attendees to campus for our Bicentennial Celebration, June 2-5. This event has been 201 years in the making and while we are excited to bring people together to reminisce, showcase our community, and celebrate, we recognize the need for health precautions to support attendee and employee well-being. 
 
If nothing else, the last two years have taught us the importance of being nimble with COVID-19 policies. We approach reunion with a similar mindset, reserving the right to modify guidelines based on the conditions that present themselves in June.

To ensure the health and well-being of our community, alumni, and friends, we ask that you adhere to the following COVID-19 guidelines:
  • All age-eligible attendees must be up to date on their vaccines, defined by the CDC as someone who has received their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and booster, where eligible.
  • Anyone who is not feeling well or has symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 should not attend.
  • International travelers should adhere to the latest CDC guidelines regarding international travel and testing.
While we will not be asking participants to submit verification of vaccination, we trust that guests will honor our guidelines for a safe and festive celebration.
 
We will communicate any necessary masking guidelines as we get closer to the event.

Important Information on Vaccines

New Hampton School will require all students and faculty to provide proof of vaccination, or receipt of their first dose, by August 20. The Health Center will provide an on-campus vaccination clinic for those students who are not able to get their second vaccination prior to arrival. 

If you have not already uploaded your student’s vaccination documentation, you must upload it as soon as possible, along with your Magnus Health forms. If a student has not been able to get vaccinated during the summer, it is essential to contact the Health Center at healthcenter@newhampton.org as soon as possible.

Any family seeking a medical or religious exemption to vaccination must contact the Health Center as soon as possible.

General Questions

  • If my student contracts COVID-19 at any time during the year, will remote learning be available to them?

    No. While we will continue to support students who miss classes due to illness, we expect students to be present on campus and do not plan to support remote learning at the same capacity as the previous year.
  • What are the best ways for me to keep abreast of developments to the plan for this school year?

    There are a number of ways we will communicate updates to our plan for the coming year. Updates will be posted in the bi-weekly Friday e-newsletter, through direct emails from the Head of School and Student Life Office, and on the New Hampton School website. Also, virtual meetings will be offered weekly to share updates and act as a forum for questions and answers. In the interim, families are always welcome to reach out to the Student Life Office at 603-677-3435 with any questions that they have.
  • What do athletics look like this year?

    As a league, we are united in our commitment to safety, for our schools and the communities we belong to. In a continuing effort to provide in-person learning and a full interscholastic sports program, we have agreed to follow shared operating guidelines for the Lakes Region League:
    • All athletes involved in interscholastic competition must be vaccinated;
    • Lakes Region League athletes may not participate in club sports, AAU basketball, split season hockey, college showcase events, or similar off-campus programs unless they have received the vaccination;
    • Coaches, athletic trainers, and personnel involved in the athletic program must be vaccinated;
    • When playing non-league opponents, we will require all participants to be vaccinated;
    • All spectators should be vaccinated. 
    This policy will be updated to align with the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and agreement amongst member schools.
