JHS Schlitterbahn

Posted on May 20, 2010 at 1:00 PM

On Saturday,May 22 we will betaking the JHS Band Trip to Schlitterbahn. Last week I sent home permission slips.  The permission slip must bereturned you will not be allowed to attend.

On the trip, you may bring food and drinks on the bus.  You may bring these as snacks and/or as a meal.  However, youwill also be receiving a meal band at the park which is good for one of several choices of combos throughout the park. The rules for food and drink on the bus are simple.  Any food may be brought.  Drinks must be in a sealed bottle or can from the store.  No previously opened drinks will be allowed on the bus.  No drinks in cups will be allowed on the bus.  No glass containers will be allowed on the bus. All food/drink will be checked before we load the bus to make sure these rules are followed. 


Here is the itinerary for the day:


Meet here at 7:00 a.m.

Leave here as soon as possible thereafter (approximately 7:20)

Stop in Luling at Buckee’s for a rest stop

Arrive at the park approximately 10:00 a.m.

All students will go to the lagoon area of the original part of the park to set up a “base camp.” Students are encouraged to rent a small locker as a group to put valuables in. 

Students will be given free run of the park as long as theystay in groups of four.  If a group gets smaller than four, they will be required to go back to the base camp area and wait for another group to come along. 

1:00-2:00 Students will be required to check in with asponsor at the camp.

5:00  Meet back at the camp, change into dry clothes

5:30  Load the bus to head for home, stopping again at Buckee’s along the way

8:00-ish  Arrive home in Ganado       

While at the park, they will only page a representative of the school for one of two reasons.  Either a student is in need of First Aid, or a student has been detained by law enforcement. If the first of these happens, I need the permission slip that is attached signed and returned or I can’t get the student treated for First Aid.   In case of the second scenario, I am NOT authorized to deal with law enforcement with your child.  You will have to do that yourself.  Therefore, if that were to happen, you will receive a call from the law enforcement officers and you would have to come pick your child up.  (So far that has not happened on any band trip I have ever sponsored, but I feel that it has to be mentioned “just in case” it does.)


If you have any questions, feel free to call the band halland ask.  771-4362
