How to sign up:
You sign up with your down payment.
There will be a late fee: 2% for each payment that comes in late.
Payments will be done ONLY in the school’s cashier (No CASH)
1. We follow the payment rule “first come, first serve”.
2. If you are the 31st payment or later, you will be put on a waiting list in the order which you paid.
3. No payments at banks will be accepted for WWW trips.
4. All payments are non-refundable except if the trip is cancelled.
5. In some cases if payments have already been made but the student can’t go on a trip, transfers are possible. However, the job of finding a student to “buy” the transferred ticket rests with the student/family, not the WWW Coordinator, nor ASFG.
6. If sign-ups surpass the limit, we will consider the remote possibility of expanding the trip or creating another independent trip with the same itinerary. However, there is absolutely no guarantee that we will be able to do either of these.
7. Parents who might have difficulty making the full down payment should meet with Mr. McGrath or Mr. Parson.
8. After the trip is full or the deadline has passed, the official waiting list is maintained by Miss Jocelin Diaz. Please contact her directly if a student is interested in placing their name on the waiting list.
