Dear parents and guardians,
Thanks to all of you who were able to make it to yesterday’s meeting about our upcoming trip: Paris, Normandy, and Brittany! It’s an incredible opportunity for our students to explore another place and culture, and I can’t wait to see them discover more about themselves in the process.
As was explained at the meeting, the deadline to enroll with the $300 discount and no-risk enrollment is Monday, November 2nd, 2020 and space is limited. We already have a number of students enrolled. CLICK HERE To Sign Up For France You can view the tour page and enroll to guarantee a spot for your child! Have questions? The friendly folks at EF’s Traveler Support team can help at 800-665-5364. And if your child has friends who haven’t signed up yet, feel free to pass this message along to their families, too. Feel free to reach out to me with questions as well.
By way of clarification, I did misquote the amount of tax credit donations that an individual and couple can donate to a school program, including this trip. The amounts are $200 for an individual and $400 for those filing jointly.
Please see below for answers to your posted questions from the meeting last night. Here is the link to the recorded zoom meeting for those that missed
