Lark's letter with instructions

May 23, 2012

Dear Catlin Gabel families:

As we approach the end of the school year, we are already preparing for next year.

Whether you are a new family joining us in the fall or a returning family, we have a very important homework assignment for all parents and guardians.

Completing four online forms will ensure that your student’s medical records are up to date, your family’s directory listing is accurate, and student security is assured.

First, you need to log on to the Catlin Gabel website. Recently admitted families can use the same user names and passwords used during the application process.

Review and make appropriate changes to the following REQUIRED online forms.

There are four separate tabs on the update web page, and each tab contains one form. You must complete all four forms.

Form One: Your family’s contact details for our records and your directory listing

Form Two: Your family’s emergency contacts and emergency care authorization for your child/ren

Form Three: Your child/ren’s medical history and authorization to dispense medications

Form Four: Photo ID denial and external website permission

Please complete your homework assignment as soon as possible and no later than Monday, August 1. We will send reminders during the summer to families who have not completed the forms.

You will find the forms in the Parent section at http://www.catlin.edu/parents/update/contact-details

If you have any technical questions about the forms, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mike Maynard in the IT office, maynardmi@catlin.edu. For other questions, please get in touch with a division administrative assistant.

Enjoy these last exciting weeks of the school year.

Sincerely yours,

Lark P. Palma, Ph.D.
Head of School

P.S. I have another bit of optional homework if you would like to join the Upper School students and teachers in reading this summer’s assigned book. We are all reading Mink River by Portland writer Brian Doyle. The award-winning author will visit classes and give a talk next year under the auspices of our Jean Vollum Distinguished Writers Series.
