• Washington DC Reminders



    Wednesday Morning

    • Students should arrive between 6:00 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.  Doors will not open until 6:00 a.m.
    • We prefer that students are dropped off under the awning by the gym and that parents do not come in the gym.
    • If you must walk your child in, please park in the front parking lot.  Do NOT park in the bus lot! 


    Packing Reminders

    • Students may only have 2 bags.
      • 1 carry on for the bus.
      • 1 suitcase/bag that will go under the bus.
      • Once we load the big bags under the bus, you won’t have access to them until we get to the hotel.


    • Snacks
      • Bus drinks must have a cap and be re-closable.
      • No gum on the bus.
      • If you are bringing snacks to be eaten at the hotel, put them in your big luggage.


    • Clothing
      • SCHOOL DRESS CODE APPLIES!  Pack items for each day that meet the school’s daily dress code.          
      • Bring layers-mornings and evenings will be cool while the daytime temps are predicted to be in the 60’s and low 70’s.  There is a good chance of rain on Friday.
      • Extra shoes-if your shoes get wet it is nice to have a back-up pair for the next day.


    • Spending Money/Card
      • This is optional.  Students will receive $10 for food at lunch and dinner is already paid for.  If you think your child needs more food money, you can send what you feel comfortable with.
      • Souvenirs – students will have 1 opportunity to buy souvenirs.  The place we stop has everything!


    Return to C.C. Griffin

    • We anticipate being back at school on Friday around 7:00 p.m.
    • Chaperones will instruct students to call/text home when we are about an hour away.
    • DO NOT PARK IN THE BUS LOT!  Busses will not be able to get in if you do.
    • Please park in a parking space in front of the school.
