4.) Hawaii Tour Update/Parent Meeting
As discussed with students last Monday please note that the parent pre-trip meeting has been rescheduled to Tuesday, March 10th at 6:30pm in the Band Room.
Both parents are required to be at this meeting. A lawyer will be present who will notarize permission to travel forms for your student (please bring photo ID). these documents are legally required for me to take your student across the border.
If parents have separated – both parents will need to attend and sign. If a parent lives out of town, a letter is still needed (I can email to you and you would have to have it notarized and faxed/emailed back to me.). A copy of any custody order is required. If a parent is deceased, a copy of the death certificate is required
If you are unable to attend, it will be your responsibility and cost to have the travel forms notarized. This meeting will also go over final trip information for parents.
