Our trip is just 2 weeks away, and we are getting super excited! If you have not yet completed the permission form, please do so and return to Ms. Kami as soon as possible.
The bus will be leaving Ellis Wednesday, April 25 promptly at 6:30am. Please make plans to arrive to Ellis, packed and ready to go, by 6:00am. We will return from Rock Eagle about 4pm on Friday. I will have the students call their parents when we are about 30 minutes outside of Savannah.
As you pack, please use the “What to Bring” list that was sent home last week. We have to house all our luggage plus ourselves on the bus, so space is going to be tight. Please only pack 1 bag. Bed linens/sleeping bags, towels, and pillows can be placed in a plastic trash bag to keep them together.
We are not scheduling a stop on our way to or from Rock Eagle. The trip should be 3.5 hours. If you would like to send snacks for your child to eat on the way, you may. We will be heading back to Savannah right after we eat lunch on Friday. I expect lots of sleeping happening on the way home.
If your child needs any medications, those medications should be brought by you to Nurse Chris as soon as possible.
Electronic devices will be taken up when we arrive at Rock Eagle. We will allow the students to call you after our evening classes to say goodnight, but phones will be taken back up after these calls. We are creating a Remind.com account for this trip so that we can send you daily updates and real time pictures. You can also contact all teacher chaperones through this account. To join the Remind.com class: Text: @794b22 to: 81010
There will be a souvenir shop open on our last night at Rock Eagle. You may send some money with your student to buy a souvenir. Students will be responsible for their own money.
If your student has any dietary needs, i.e. vegetarian or allergies, you need to let me know ASAP.
