Student Behavior

  • Students are expected to abide by all applicable school policies while on this trip.
  • The trip organizers have the right to deny a student from participating based on disciplinary or other issues that arise before the trip (e.g., fighting, bullying, etc.).
  • The “Good Night” time on the itinerary is the last time that any student will be permitted in the hotel hallways.  Errands, such as obtaining soft drinks, ice, or asking questions of the chaperones must be carried out before that time.

Packing & Preparing

What to Bring:
Take all items on board the bus that you plan to use throughout the day, including phones, jackets, spending money, snacks/drinks.  

Everything you’ll need at the hotel (sleepwear, toiletries, games, more snacks & drinks) goes in a bag that can be put in the under-bus storage.  You won’t be able to access it throughout the day.

Medication:  must be given to the chaperones before boarding.

Weather:  We will be outside and walking A LOT!  Wear comfortable shoes.  Check the forecast and bring the right clothes, including jacket/rain coats.

Phones and other screens:   Students are responsible for their possessions, so use discretion.  Label these items with name and parent phone number in case they are misplaced.

Music and video: Must be played through headphones. No flash photography after dark.  No laser lights.  Movies rated G or PG only.

What NOT to Bring:  Don’t bring anything that isn’t allowed at school. You and your luggage will pass through metal detectors and will be searched thoroughly before boarding the buses.  Please triple check that there are no items that would be prohibited in school, or you may not be able to attend the trip.


Student Safety is the most important aspect of this tour. The following procedures are in place to ensure safe travels:

  • Chaperones and tour coordinators have required clearances. Most are district employees who know the students and are familiar with the places we visit.
  • Experienced tour coordinators travel with the group at all times. They explain meeting times, places, etc. in advance of each stop. They will alert students and chaperones to any changes that need to be made, and are in contact with the bus drivers at all times.
  • Students travel in groups with their roommates and their bus chaperones.
  • The places we visit have strict security and/or police on site.
  • Hotel rooms do not have exterior exits. Hotel rooms have landline phones and students are told how to contact chaperones during the night.
  • A security guard is present all night. Mechanisms are put in place to ensure students do not visit one another’s rooms during the night.
  • Only experienced drivers are used, and we strictly follow federal laws pertaining to driver safety.
