Payment Schedule:

Total Cost: $825* per student/chaperone

October 17: Payment 1 ($225) & Commitment Form Due

Commitment Form will be sent home with students tomorrow

December 15: Payment 2 ($150) Due

January 26: Payment 3 ($225) Due

March 3: Final Payment ($225)* Due

*The final payment amount may be reduced. $825 is the maximum the trip will cost per student and is calculated on 30 students and 3 chaperones participating. If more than 30 students commit to the tour this cost may be reduced as the cost of items such as the bus rental will be divided by more participants and therefore cost less per person. I will communicate with parents and students if the final payment amount is reduced when that is finalized, probably in early Spring.
