The Sargent Center retreat is a 3 day, 2 night trip to the Sargent Center in Hancock, New Hampshire. This field trip has been a real highlight for the 7th/8th grade team for many years. You can read more about a past trip here.

  1. Medication Drop-Off and Pick-Up: State law prohibits students from carrying medication (prescription and over-the-counter medications).

If you are sending your child with any medications to Sargent Center, please follow these instructions:

  • An adult should drop off medication on the morning of the trip to Mr. Pererya’s office (Room 503) in Landberg Hall between 7:30-8:15 am. If you cannot come during this window, please reach out to Federico Pereyra or me to make other arrangements for an adult to drop off medication at another time prior to the trip.
  • Prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy container with the child’s name, dosage instructions, and physician’s name. Dosage and administration instructions must match the doctor’s orders you submitted. Please put the medication in a sealed plastic bag with your child’s full name, IACS and advisory written on the bag.
  • Over the counter medication must be in the original container with administration directions intact. Dosage and administration instructions must match the paperwork you submitted. Please put the medication in a sealed plastic bag with your child’s full name, IACS and advisory written on the bag.
  • Medication can be picked up on the afternoon your child returns between 2-4 pm. If you cannot come during this window, please reach out to make other arrangements for an adult to pick up medication at another time prior to the trip.
