Welcome Deerfield Parents!

I want to extend a warm welcome to all families, new and returning!

In light of a challenging year, many in this community feel a sense of comfort in the traditions and rhythms of Deerfield life. We are eager to return to, celebrate, and discover those moments that define the Deerfield Experience as we begin a new academic year together.

On this site, you will find ways to be involved as a volunteer through the active Deerfield Parents Network (DPN), upcoming parent events both on and off campus, log-in to DA Info where you can view your child’s class schedule, grades, and student comments, and ways to support Deerfield through a donation.

Please reach out with any questions you have.

Important Dates

Please view the Main Calendar for the official and most up-to-date list of events, vacation start/end times, future year events, and more.


Note: For vacations and long weekends, students may not leave prior to their last regularly scheduled class, assessments, or co-curricular assignment; schedule changes should not be requested to accommodate travel plans. Dormitories close the day after school vacations begin and all students should arrange to be off campus by that time. The only exception is Long Winter Weekend, when all students must be off campus beginning on Thursday.

At the conclusion of vacations and long weekends, students must return to campus by 7:45 pm on:
