Kitchen Duty

This page describes the policy and location of Kitchen Duty Events.

What is Kitchen Duty?

Boarding and day students are required to perform kitchen duty two to three times a year. Kitchen duty includes serving food, washing dishes, and cleaning tables in the school dining hall, as well as conducting routine maintenance in the Student-Faculty Center. Boarding students typically are assigned kitchen duty on weekends and day students on weekdays. Students may not pay other students to perform kitchen duty for them. 

For brunch kitchen duty you should report to the Dining Hall between 10:45 and 11 pm to eat.  Work begins at 11am. For dinner kitchen duty you should report to the Dining Hall between 5:00 and 5:15pm work starts at 5:30 and will conclude no later than 7:30 pm.  Please wear closed-toed shoes and arrange accordingly for transportation.  Failure to show up for kitchen duty leaves the kitchen short-staffed, your peers alone to do a job meant for three people, and results in 3 hours of workjobs assigned for each missed KD.

Where can I find out who is on duty when?

If you are a current Concord Academy Student, you will find your kitchen duty assignments directly in your Google Calendar Application. Using the search function of Google Calendar will help you figure out when you are assigned to Kitchen Duty. You can manually set Google Calendar to send you reminders.

How do I find out who is on duty if I am not a student?

The Kitchen Duty Calendar feed is not automatically added to Staff or Faculty Google Accounts, though any Google Account user can view the calendar embeds below to see who is on duty, or to subscribe to the feed. This will be a Google Calendar "View Only" feed.

How do I change my assignment?

Only a Student Life Office member may change Kitchen Duty Assignments. The specific day commitment is still in effect, even if the student chooses to "reply No" on their Google Calendar application.  If you have a conflict, including one with an athletic or performing art commitment, please arrange a switch with a friend and notify the dean of students of the switch.  If a switch is made without notification and no one shows up, the person originally scheduled for kitchen duty will be held accountable.
