Welcome Families!
The Parent Engagement Team welcomes you to Deerfield.

Come visit and explore the Parent Lounge in the Ephraim Williams house.

Relax and Recharge
The Parent Lounge is a place on campus where you can relax, meet fellow parents, have a cup of coffee to-go (or stay!).
All you need
It has an accessible restroom, a hydration station to refill your water bottle, access to a computer, the local newspaper, a place to recharge your phones, and is generally a quite respite for parents.
When is it open?
The Parent Lounge is open to parents throughout the school year

whenever our office is open

(Monday-Friday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm)

and over special weekends (Family Weekends, Choate Day etc.)
