Canada Trip is less than 2 months away! Be on the lookout for frequent
updates with important information about the trip.
Some things to think about:
Be sure to check your cell phone rates for Canada. Some plans let you add
coverage when you travel for a certain country if you don't already have
it. Be sure to check calling AND texting rates and talk with your child
before the trip as to how much they should use their phone. We have become
used to texting and calling frequently during the day but this could become
very costly when international roaming charges start adding up!
We will be in a foreign country and in Canada the Canadian Dollar is used.
Current rates today are 94 cents = $1 U.S. Some places may take US money
in Victoria, but will always give you change back in Canadian dollars. We
will talk with the students about spending their Canadian change before
arriving back in Washington at the end of the trip. The students can change
money at the hotel desk depending on the hotel's cash flow at the time, but
the best way is to use the bank down the street, or the currency exchange
machine in town nearby. We will have directions to places where money can
be exchanged and be available for assistance for anyone who needs help.
And as always - be sure you have your travel documents (passport/ official
birth certificate) and check the band booster website for more information
if you aren't sure what your child will need to bring. Extra supporting
documents may be needed for students coming from dual households or single
parents with sole custody of a child, or students with passports other than
from the USA, so do check the band website for specific details on that.
Individual emails with installment news specific to your child will be
coming soon, so watch for those from John Horn.
