STUDENT HANDBOOK SUMMER OF 2021 - Phillips Exeter Academy
STUDENT HANDBOOK
     SUMMER OF 2021
The Student Handbook
This handbook is a guide that sets the standard for what is expected of you as a Summer Exonian. You
will find in these pages information about Academy life, rules and regulations, and policies. Please take
the time to read this handbook carefully. You will find yourself referring to it when you have questions
about issues ranging from out-of-town procedures to laundry services.

The rules and regulations of Phillips Exeter Academy are set by the Trustees, faculty and administration,
and may be revised during the summer. If significant changes occur during the program, the Academy
will notify students and their families. All students are expected to follow the most recent rules and
regulations. Procedures outlined in this handbook apply under normal circumstances. On occasion,
however, a situation may require an immediate, nonstandard response. In such circumstances, the
Academy reserves the right to take actions deemed to be in the best interest of the Academy, its
employees, and its students. This handbook as written does not limit the authority of the Academy to
alter its rules and procedures to accommodate any unusual or changed circumstances.

If you have questions about the content of this handbook, please feel free to ask. Your teachers, your
advisers, and members of the Exeter Summer Office all are here to help you.

COVID-19 Guidelines
As COVID-19 vaccination rates of adults and students increase, this allows us to change our protocols, and start
returning to a new normal while keeping the health and safety of our community first and foremost. Please review
the current protocols (as of June 4, 2021).

Conditions continue to change, so make sure to consult the website, Exeter Summer COVID-19 Updates, for
additional information and modified safety protocols. The items below pertain to all students.

PRE-ARRIVAL TO CAMPUS:
•    There is no required pre-travel COVID-19 test. We highly recommend that students get a COVID test before
     traveling to make sure that there are no surprises on registration day.
•    No required pre-quarantine/isolation for students at home prior to arrival to campus.

ARRIVAL TO CAMPUS:
•    On registration day, all students will undergo a rapid COVID-19 test before being allowed into the program.
     If a student tests positive, they will need to leave campus with their designated guardian, or be housed in our
     Health Center while they wait for their designated guardian to take them off campus (within 48 hours). Stu-
     dents who test positive will join their classes remotely until cleared to return to campus.
•    Only Exeter Summer students will be allowed in the buildings on registration day. This includes the Field
     House where registration will occur, dorm buildings, the bookstore, the dining hall, etc. Family members can
     assist students in getting luggage to the dorms but will need to remain outside.
•    After a negative rapid COVID-19 test result, there will be no quarantine period on campus for students. In-per-
     son classes (both Academic and PE) will begin on Tuesday, July 6.
•    Students will be required to wear masks while on campus with a few exceptions: while in their own dorm
     room, while actively eating or drinking, and during PE classes with some exceptions.
•    All students will be in a single room (even though some of the rooms will be set-up for roommate situations).
••   Non-vaccinated students will have twice-weekly COVID-19 tests.

All community members will wear masks when at a minimum of six feet from others. Masks will not be required
when one is alone, eating, or at a safe distance (six feet). While eating one should still observe social distancing.

In the event of a student’s positive test result, that student will need to depart campus within 48 hours. Parents
will need to pick up their child. If the parents cannot come to campus, due to distance, etc., another adult who can
pick up the child must be designated by the parents. The identity of that adult must be shared with Exeter Summer
before the program begins.

These safety protocols will remind us of our responsibilities to work to safeguard each other’s well-being to the
maximum practical degree we can. We’ll still learn, have a great deal of fun and return home with rich memories
and new friends.

houses for 10 to 20 students each. Depending on the
size, each dormitory has one to five resident faculty
members.

■ ROOM INSPECTIONS
Academy employees, including dormitory faculty and
Campus Safety staff members, may enter student rooms
for inspection, for health and safety purposes, and for
disciplinary reasons. Such entry does not in and of itself
constitute a room search. Investigation of a room’s con-
tents beyond simple entry and observation is consid-
ered a room search, for which the approval of the Exeter
Summer Dean is required.

■ ROOM AND POSSESSION
SEARCHES
The Academy is committed to creating a safe environ-
ment on campus for all members of the community.
For this reason, there may be times when a search of a
student’s room or possessions may be warranted. A fac-
ulty or staff member who has reason to suspect, or has
knowledge of physical or other potential harm should
present their concerns to the Exeter Summer Dean, who
will decide whether a search should be made. When a
search is undertaken, at least one Exeter Summer Dean
and a member of Campus Safety must be present. An
effort is also made to include the student whose room
or possessions are being searched, as well as a faculty
resident of the dorm, in the event of a room search. A
search of a student’s possessions, when warranted, may
include such items as backpacks and electronic devic-
es, including but not limited to cell phones, tablets and
computers. If a controlled drug is located during a room
search or discovered in any other fashion on campus,
the Academy is required to notify the police (see Safe
School Zone reporting laws).

■ ROOMING POLICY
We firmly believe that making new friends and getting
along with all types of people are essential parts of the
boarding school experience, and we will not honor re-
quests for specific roommates. Friends or relatives will
not be housed together. Requests for a specific room
or dorm must be made in writing to summer@exeter.

■ MOTOR VEHICLES
If day students are licensed drivers, they may drive
between home and campus. Assuming proper insur-
ance and parents’/guardians’ approval, they may also
give rides to other day students for commuting. Once
on campus, vehicles must remain parked in approved
locations.

APPROVED STUDENT PARKING AREAS
Student vehicles may be parked on public streets (fol-
lowing town parking rules) including Tan Lane, the
Water Street parking lot, behind the Central Heating
Station or in the parking garage under the Thompson
Field House.

NON-APPROVED STUDENT PARKING AREAS
Students may not use the parking lots reserved for fac-
ulty and staff next to dormitories, Jeremiah Smith Hall,
Nathaniel Gilman House, the Tan Lane lot, the Admis-
sions lot, the Spring Street lot, the Davis Center lot, the
Elm Street Dining Hall lot, on Abbot Lane, behind the
Health Center, or any designated resident faculty or ser-
vice vehicle parking spaces.

All day student vehicles parked on campus must be reg-
istered with Campus Safety. Day student cars should be
registered before the start of Exeter Summer.

All parking violations on public ways (streets and side-
walks) and all on-campus parking violations involving
accessible spaces and fire lanes are enforceable by the
Exeter Police Department. Tickets issued by the Exeter
Police Department include a monetary penalty. The
Academy’s Campus Safety officers may issue a ticket to
remind drivers they have parked improperly on campus.
While there is no monetary fee associated with these
tickets, Campus Safety will refer students to the Exeter
Summer Office if multiple violations are accrued. Vehi-
cles found to be in violation of these policies are subject
to towing without notice.
