Back to School Information

General Reference

The following resources are intended to help parents and students navigate all “Back to School” requirements, activities, and information. All students should read the “All Students” tab, as well as any other tab that applies to you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Registration Forms

Health forms are due July 15th. Medical Records or Health Forms can be emailed to Carol Smith or faxed to (609) 921-2839.  

Registration forms must be completed and submitted by a parent or guardian before August 1st.  The electronic form is accessible by clicking the boxes on the right-hand side of this page. 

Books

A list of required texts, iBooks, and applications for Middle School is available by clicking here and the Upper School requirements are available by clicking here.  The Hun School partners with ClassBook.com, a national online textbook distributor, for all of our textbook needs.  The online text book store at ClassBook.com will be open beginning July 15th.  Parents and students are welcome to purchase books anywhere; however, books purchased from other retailers will not be available for buyback at the end of the year.  Also, The Hun School receives a small commission for the books purchased by our families.  When making this choice, please consider supporting The Hun School. 

Due to the extraordinary costs of international shipping and the inconvenience of transporting books from a distance, out-of-state and international resident students are welcome to have their online book purchases shipped directly to The Hun School.  Please be sure to have the student’s name appear on the purchase and shipment.  Students will find their books in their dorm room upon arrival to campus.  Due to the limited size of our storage space, this option is only available to out-of-state and international resident students.

Student Handbooks

All students and parents should familiarize themselves with the Middle School or Upper School Student Handbook.  The handbooks outline our community expectations, rules, and helpful guidelines.  Topics include academic requirements, student support services, discipline, and dress code.  The 2015 - 2016 handbooks will be mailed home this summer.  In the interim last year's handbooks can be read online here.

Student ID Cards

In addition to serving as a form of identification, student ID cards are needed on campus to activate printers and copiers, access some of the dormitories (for resident students only), and to access a prepaid spending account, Raider Cash, used for meals, snacks and laundry services. Returning students should hold onto their student ID cards over the summer, as new ones will not be issued until mid-fall. New students will receive temporary ID cards (without photos) at the beginning of the year. Replacement cards can be purchased in the Business Office for $10.
