Crossing Carolina 2015

April 15th – 17th

Eligibility

Students must meet all of the behavior guidelines in order to be invited to join us on Crossing Carolina.

Behavior Guidelines (effective 1/28/15 – 4/14/15)

Students who wish to go on the NBMS Crossing Carolina trip MUST have:

·      No ASD, ISS or OSS

·      No more than 1 chill-out (including chill-outs from substitute teachers)

·      Bus referrals will be handled on an individual basis.

 Crossing Carolina is our longest fieldtrip in terms of time and distance and student behavior must be exemplary. School administration has determined that students who have served 5 or more days in Out-of-School suspension and/or the School Treatment Program during the current school year are not eligible for this trip.  School administrators reserve the right to restrict participation due to significant disciplinary profiles (grades 6 – 8) and/or involvement with the juvenile criminal justice system.

Transportation

We will travel by charter bus. Students will be allowed to choose their own seats and they must remain in those seats at all times. Boys and girls will be separated on the bus and chaperones will be seated throughout the bus.

Food

All meals will be provided. A hot breakfast will be served at the hotel each morning. Students will receive a bagged lunch each day. We will ask students to choose from a list of options at a later date. Dinner on the first night will be pizza at the Fun Depot. The second night’s dinner will be a cookout (burgers, hot dogs, & chicken) at the baseball stadium.

Lodging

Four students per room – students choose their own roommates. Adults will NOT be in the rooms with students, unless a chaperone requests to share a room with his/her child. (There will be an additional charge for rooms with fewer than 4 people.)

Cost & Payments

The estimated cost for the trip is $250.

A total cost will be determined once the total number of participants is determined.

·      1st payment - $50 – due January 16th   

The first payment must be accompanied by a signed medical release form and a signed student-parent agreement, including the initialed student expectations portion.

·      2nd payment - $50 – due February 2nd

·      3rd payment - $50 – due February 17th

·      4th payment - $50 – due March 2nd

·      5th payment –$50– due March 16th

·      If actual cost exceeds estimated cost, additional balance will be due on April 7th.

***All money and forms should be turned in to homeroom teachers.

***If the cost of this trip will prohibit your child from attending, please contact his/her homeroom teacher prior to January16th.***

 ***Please make every effort to turn in payments on time or early. If you MUST make a late payment, please notify your child’s homeroom teacher before the due date.***

 Refunds

If it is necessary for you to request a refund at any time, for any reason, we will only be able to refund the amount we can get back. ***A full refund is NOT guaranteed.*** All requests should be submitted in writing to the student’s homeroom teacher. Please state the reason for the request. No refunds will be given after March 27th.

Behavior Expectations

Although this educational trip is fun, it is still a school event. Students are expected to conduct themselves accordingly. Safety is our number one priority. Therefore, it is essential that all students understand and follow the student expectations as listed on the student-parent agreement form.

Behavior issues will be addressed individually.   Consequences are the same off campus as they are at school (punch, ASD, ISS, OSS).  In addition, the student may suffer loss of privileges while on the trip or be sent home.

 HELP!

·      If you or someone you know is interested in helping to cover the cost of a deserving student, please contact Mrs. Williams by e-mail (sherri.williams@onslow.k12.nc.us).

·      If you are interested in serving as a chaperone, please indicate it in the appropriate space on the permission slip. Do NOT send chaperone money now.

o   Chaperones MUST be fingerprinted and approved by Onslow County Schools no later than March 1st. For more information contact Mrs. Bender as soon as possible.

o   Chaperones will be required to attend a meeting on Tuesday, April 7th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.

QUESTIONS?

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher via email or call the school office to schedule a conference.
