IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TGAP SINGERS
Pending approval from the White County Board of Education
DATES: May 16-19
WHERE: Disney World, Orlando, Florida (We probably will perform at Disney Springs).
COST: $622 Quad occupancy
$657 Triple occupancy
$729 Double occupancy
$25 per person deposit is due Nov. 13th. Final payment is due by Feb. 27, 2020.
TRIP COST INCLUDES: Roundtrip deluxe motorcoach, 3 nights hotel at Disney Pop Century Resort, and 3 day park hopper pass to all 4 of the Disney Parks.
All students who attend this performance are required to make travel arrangements through the school, not individually.
We will be having a number of fundraisers to help with the cost of the trip. Money raised through fundraisers will be for the students that attend the trip, not the adults. If you feel that you cannot afford the trip then attempt to raise money to help with the cost. I would like for every child to go on this trip. If you need help I will do everything I can to make sure your child attends. In the 27 years of doing these trips I have found money for every child!
Parents, Students, and Community
Safety drills will take place throughout the school year. We will practice fire safety, severe weather safety, and lock down procedures. While our intent is to prepare our students and staff for emergencies that might occur, we are aware that this may cause anxiety to some of our students. We do not want to cause any undue stress, but merely educate and practice for as many circumstances as we can. Preparation and communication are our means of educating our schools for as many scenarios as possible. We ask that you help us with this endeavor by having these conversations in your home. Please stress with your children that White County Schools wants to help them be aware of safety and it's importance.
