FAQ’s from last night’s meeting:

  • The price that is outlined is worse case scenario.  We will no know an exact price until we can lock in airfare around the end of February.  We are hoping the price comes down about $50-$75.  Once we know the exact price, we will make that public and you will have 7 days to commit to the trip.  When we get the go ahead from you, we will send your money to the travel agent to lock it in.
  • We will be split over several commercial flights.  There will be a school board employee and chaperones with every group on every flight.  We will travel by bus to the airport with your flight group.
  • Luggage will go out to LA in the semi.  Students will not have to check luggage at the airport.
  • We kicked off two fundraisers last night to help pay for the trip.  They will be posted to the website today.
  • This will be a once in a lifetime trip for our students.  I would encourage you to try to make this opportunity happen.  It is going to be AMAZING!!!
