Washington D.C. Trip

  •  Washington DC FALL 2022 Nov 1-3 Itinerary   

    DC Drop off and pick up information

    Drop off should be no later than 6:00.  Students can start entering their designated door at 5:15.
    If your student is on buses 1-4 you will drop off and pick up on the West side (Sauder Elementary Side) of the building.  They will enter into doors 5W and head to the Gold Gym.   
    If your student is on buses 5-8 you will drop off and pick up on the East side (Bus Garage side) of the building.  They will enter into doors 20E and head to the Purple Gym.
    Once your student enters the gym they will find their bus table and check in and everybody's luggage will be searched.   Remember we are only going for 2.5 days.  Pack what you will need but remember the student will be responsible for their own luggage.  
    Pick up will vary depending on traffic coming home.  Our goal time is 7:30 but we will have students call when we get back into Ohio.  Again pick up on the same side as you dropped off.   Please stay out of the parking lot in front of the school right off of Mudbrook.  Buses will pull in all along the curb. 
    HOODIES on Tuesday,  we will have them at all times on the bus with us.   Wear a Purple shirt on for Wednesday or at least a Jackson shirt
