The H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines
are available to students with parental consent forms
at Isham Health Center. If your child has not been vaccinated, please encourage them to visit Isham from Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We continue to remind students to practice caution and when walking to and from downtown Andover. Students are encouraged to use Main Street and travel in groups of two or more.
As always, if something troubling happens it should immediately be reported to Phillips Academy Public Safety by calling 978-749-4444 from a mobile phone or 4444 from an on-campus phone.
During the first week of the winter term we conducted a test of the Academy’s emergency notification system
for all students. The system we have in place sends a text message and telephone call with a recorded message to all cell phone numbers that we have on record. The test took place as students were arriving at the Chapel for the weekly All School Meeting. When asked for a show of hands, it was clear that an overwhelming majority of students received the messages as intended. We were pleased with the results and will continue to refine our emergency communications protocols and to collect current cell phone numbers from campus community members.
