Booster News!

Since we have added a third bus, there are a few spots open for parents to attend the trip in the spring with their student. Please read the letter from the band, orchestra and choir directors on the conditions and expectations. Sign up at Bob Rogers Travel. After logging in, click 'add friends or family,' to register.

Dear Parents,

In an effort to make transportation more cost effective for everyone, for the first time, we are opening up the trip to non-chaperone parents.

1.  In order to ensure that we have the safest and most efficient trip possible, adults attending the trip in a non-chaperone capacity should keep the following in mind:

2.  Parent travelers do not have chaperone duties, responsibilities, or authority.

3.  Parent travelers must undergo APS’s standard background checks at their own expense. The deadline to complete said background check is December 15, 2019. Background checks may be completed online at the following link:

4.  Parents traveling alone should expect accommodations to be double occupancy with assignments based on gender.

5.  In order to ensure maximum efficiency, all non-chaperone parent travelers will all be assigned to the same coach. If preferred, students may sit with their parents on that coach.

Thank you for choosing to travel with us this year and for adhering to the guidelines in place. They are designed to provide safety and fun for all involved.

If you have any questions, you may direct them to the appropriate director:
