EVERY student on this trip goes to school…. We will have missed Friday already and if we wish to have more opportunities along this line we must be good students outside of the trip as well.
The total cost of the trip is $210 which will include all meals but Friday and Saturday Lunch and Saturday Dinner.
We will offer a disbursement from band accounts of up to $40 for food/souvenir expenses for this trip.
Any student going on the trip must meet the following deadlines:
January 16, 2015 Permission slip for the trip must be turned in, with a positive balance in the student’s band account of $50 for trip deposits. This amount will be non-refundable from this date.
February 28, 2015 $100 will be removed from the band account at this time for trip fees.
March 20, 2015 Final payment of $60 will be removed from the band account at this time for trip fees.
April 1, 2015 If the meal disbursement option is exercised, the additional $40 must be present in the account. As of this date we will likely be unable to return a LARGE portion of trip fees if it is cancelled.
Student account balances are updated frequently and may be found at the bottom of the Fundraising page on this site. If your student is new to the band, they will have an account set up very shortly.
Deposits to student account can be made at the Paypal link at this location as well (make sure to name the student), but fees apply, so I recommend sending checks to the boosters through me at the school via check.
