Travel Opportunity for Seniors

Rockcastle County High School is very excited to announce that organizational plans have started for a  trip to New York City in April 2013.  This travel opportunity is limited to seniors only.

Linked below you will find information regarding the tour including a day-by-day itinerary, inclusions, and cost.   All meals are included in the prices listed, except for a fast-food stop en route on the day of departure.   At this point, we are hoping to have between 40-50 students sign up for the trip.   The price listed is based on 4 students per room (quad occupancy).  Again, the cost includes all meals except for the first meal on the day of departure.   You will also notice the cost includes a Broadway show, a dinner/dance cruise on New York Harbor, and various admissions.

The trip is still pending board approval; however, we are currently taking and holding deposits.  Because of time constraints, a $50 non-refundable deposit is due by Friday, November 9.  No deposits can be accepted after this date.   Checks should be made out to Rockcastle County High School with the student’s name and “senior trip” in the memo blank.   Checks should be taken to my classroom, Room 021.   Upon receipt, I will submit all checks to the office.   If parents prefer, they may bring a check in person to the high school and submit that to Mrs. Sondra Mullins.   Again, the full name of the student and “senior trip” should be included in the memo blank.

Until November 9, we are only taking deposits for students.   Buses only hold a maximum of 50 students (with room for 5 chaperones).  We want to make certain we have space for all of the students who want to go before (possibly) adding a second bus (which can increase the cost if we have less than 40 paying per bus).   After the November 9 deadline, we will be able to see exactly how much room is available for additional travelers.

If you have any questions regarding the tour, please direct your questions Ms. Susan Norton or Mrs. Becky Smith, assistant principal.   You may call the high school at 256-4816.

Again, we are very excited at the opportunity available to RCHS students for the first time since the consolidation of our area high schools in the early 1970’s.   We hope this opportunity is just the beginning of a new tradition for the graduating class.
