Spring Trip to Washington DC – Like I mentioned before the winter break, I am working on my alternate trip to Washington DC in place of the New York trip. I am working with John DeCrotie with Group Travel Consultants and we have a great trip planned. The cost per person is $900. If a flight option comes in a little cheaper, we will lower that number. I will send out trip contracts in a separate email. This is a first come first serve trip as we have limited space available. We will need both the trip contract and the deposit for a spot to be secured. We will need a number of parents to serve as chaperones. Students must have a zero balance with their band fees to be able to make a deposit for the trip. Those who responded to the survey before the break regarding the trip are expected to make the deposit unless you contact a director saying otherwise. We want to hold your spot but if you can’t go, others will want it.
