Any 8th graders interested in going on the Washington D.C. trip: There will be an information meeting on Wednesday, September 5th in the PAC for parents/guardians and students. Due to space, Parents/students on teams 8-1, 8-2 and 8-3 will have their meeting at 7:00pm and Parents/students on teams 8-4, 8-5, and 8-6 will meet at 7:45pm. Here is a link for more information: /userfiles/922/my files/s43417 west clermont middle dc pf.pdf?id=11601 The first deposit for students going on the trip is $100 by September 19th. Everyone who books the night of the parent meeting is guaranteed a spot on the tour (you will need to pay a $100.00 deposit per child to book on the trip). After that, reservations will be taken based on availability. Students will NOT be eligible to attend the 8th grade Washington DC trip if they:
• Received OSS (Out of school suspension) as a consequence beginning Jan 3
• Are failing 2 or more classes (includes core & encore) for 2nd quarter (December 21 is the last day of 2nd quarter)
• Are habitually truant (unexcused absences of 30 consecutive hours or 42 hours in one month or 72 hours for the school year)
Insurance is built into the trip so if a student cannot attend for any reason after paying they will receive their money back.
