Washington DC Committee 2022
Just a heads up. The 2022 committee is now formed and will start posting on the same platforms we are currently using. Any posts relevant to the 2021 trip will include their date in the title.
The trip has been moved to
November 3-8, 2021.
I posted the email from Brightspark below.
Hello DC Trip Families,
We hope this email finds you and your family well and staying safe in the midst of these challenging times we're experiencing. After much deliberation and many discussions with Brightspark, we are writing to let you know that we have decided to move the Washington, DC trip to November 3-8, 2021. We feel that the November dates will produce the greatest opportunity for the most students to be able to experience this incredible tour.
By now, many of you have made multiple payments towards the trip. To allow for new students to join us, we have adjusted the payment schedule. The final payment has been moved to June 1st, 2021.
If your child can no longer attend due to the new dates in November, please email our Brightspark Customer Service Representative, Jackie Wright, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 1, 2021. Please include "Kenowa Hills" in the subject line. Your child will be removed from the tour and details on your refund will be provided. Please note, if you choose to cancel participation at this time, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to add your child back onto the tour at a later date as reservations will have already been made. We strongly encourage you to retain your registration for our DC trip if you are still interested in having your child participate.
If you intend on sending your child on the tour in November, there is no further action you need to take at this time.
We hope that your child will still be able to travel with us and continue the long tradition we’ve had taking students to Washington, DC.
The Kenowa Hills Travel Committee and Brightspark Travel
The trip is now being moved to November of this year. We are not sure on exact dates yet. This was approved by the Superintendent, so both 8th and 9th graders (current 7th and 8th) will be able to go. 😁
We have confirmed dates!! The trip is rescheduled for March 17-22, 2021.
There are still candy bars available, and we are selling them at 1/2 price. There will be no fundraising money earned for these boxes. There are 60 chocolate bars in one box, and one box now cost $30. Please Contact Mandy if you are interested.
There are no more Script orders being placed. All orders are electronic only (no cards), and anything earned will go to the General Fund.
The update that you have all been waiting for...The trip has been postponed until spring. We are waiting on confirmation of dates from Brightspark and will let you know as soon as we know.
-If you need or want to cancel, you have a few options. You may purchase RGP (refund guarantee protection) for $89 until October 1st. Once you have purchased RGP, you have until October 10th to cancel the trip. You would then get all of the money back for that trip minus the $89 and any fund raising money earned. I will post directions on how to purchase RGP shortly.
-If you do not have RGP and cancel before October 10th, you will get all of the money back for that trip minus a $150 cancellation fee and any fund raising money earned.
-If you do not attend the trip, but do not cancel before October 10th, there will be no refund, and you will be responsible for paying for the trip.
