Shadow Days

Due to the demand for prospective students to visit Coe-Brown for a Shadow Day prior to making a decision about whether or not to apply for the coming year, we are asking each family to consider seriously whether or not a visit is necessary: i.e. If an older sibling already attends Coe-Brown and you know that the next will certainly apply, perhaps he or she may not need to shadow.  We also ask that, if applicable, the elementary/middle school counselors assist in coordinating these visits.

Shadow days will run from late September through November 26th, and requests to visit will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students please note:

  1. We ask that you check in between 7:30 and 7:45 in the School Counseling Department (in the white building of our complex on the south side of Route 4), so that we know you’re here and can give you a name-tag. Dismissal time is 2:34. Parents may want to arrange pick-up a bit later to avoid bus and student driver traffic.
  1. We try to match you with a host or hostess who has classes in which you’ve expressed an interest, but the idiosyncrasies of our 7-day rotating schedule occasionally make this difficult, especially if you also have requested a particular person to shadow. If you have asked to shadow a person who is currently in virtually none of the types of classes you wish to visit, we may reassign you to another host or hostess.
  1. Bring a book or schoolwork with you in case your host has a study hall that day or one of the classes is administering a quiz or test in which you cannot participate.
  1. You may bring a lunch or buy one here (allow about $4-6 for a full lunch). There are vending machines as well as the Coe-Brown lunch options.
  1. If your host has Physical Education on your visiting day, you may participate if you have brought a change of clothes and sneakers with you.
  1. Finally, visiting students are reminded that they should be on their best behavior. We notice!

If you are interested in visiting Coe-Brown, please complete the Request for Visit form and return it to your counselor in accord with whatever deadlines he/she establishes. Parents of students not currently attending Barrington or Nottingham Schools are asked to return the request directly to Tara Tenasco at the address above by either mail or fax.
