HOMECOMING

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14–SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15

Join your Flint Hill community for a weekend filled with athletic events, food and fun for the entire family! The weekend kicks off with athletic games and our traditional bonfire on Friday night. Come back on Saturday for more athletic events, spirit giveaways and family-friendly activities for Huskies of all ages! 

The Den will be open with concessions for sale and the School Store will open a Pop-Up Shop featuring limited, new items first available at Homecoming in the Peterson Middle School. We look forward to welcoming alumni back to campus at the alumni table with the faculty host committee and recognizing alumni athletes throughout the weekend. There are many ways to get involved and show your Husky spirit, and you can find everything you need to know about this exciting weekend below.

Volunteers play a critical role in this community event. Sign up for a shift.

Friendly reminder! The only pets permitted on campus are Klondike and service animals.

Important Campus Driving/Parking Reminders

We expect large crowds. Please allow additional time for parking. In order to keep safety as our highest priority, please follow all traffic directions and signage including the following:

  • Flint Hill community members are never permitted to park in the local neighborhoods. If you arrive and the Middle and Upper School campus lots are full, overflow parking will be available on the Lower School campus and shuttles will be available to and from the Peterson Middle School.

  • When driving to the Middle School, remember that the Oakton Road entrance may only be accessed from the right-hand turn lane on Oakton Road. Left-hand turns are not permitted from Oakton Road into the Peterson Middle School parking lot.
