The link will be on the "Trips" page within the www.srrmusic.com website. At exactly 10:50 am, the link will become active. Students are advised to be on the site early to make sure they have a good connection. Students will need to refresh their browser often, because the link will become active without notice. Once the link is active, it is important for them to complete the Google Form and submit as quickly as possible.

Why is there an application that sorts all students?

The goal of this trip is to offer students a high quality experience for a reasonable price. To control the cost, we need to fill a bus so that the transportation cost is as low as possible. To be fair, we are asking students to use a google form to log the sequence of when students submit their application. The google form will time stamp each entry and give Mr. Mick and Mr. Campbell a sorted list of students. From that list we will make decisions about how many students can participate and who will be selected.

We tested the google form process and it worked beautifully. The result is currently posted on the srrmusic.com trips page.

Chaperones for NYC Music Trip

We will need chaperones for the NYC Music Trip. All parents interested in being a chaperone must make application in a similar manner to the student application. It is difficult to predict the number of chaperones we need because we do not have a total number of students at this point. Our general rule is 1 adult for every 7 students.

Our process will be to use the google form process just like students. Chaperones will need to complete a Chaperone Agreement Form and submit that along with a security deposit ($75) anytime between January 20 through January 23 at 4:00 pm. We welcome parents who have experience chaperoning students.

Once we see the number of students and the balance of gender of the students accepted, we will sort through the adult chaperone acceptance process. Each bus will have at least one experienced chaperone. From there, we will look at the sorted order of applications that were made (Friday, January 23 at 12:00 noon).

Security Deposit refunds

All students need to know that the security deposit that is made will be held until we verify that all students selected have completed all parts of the application process. This includes the parent permission form. Students who are not accepted to be a part of the trip will get their security deposit back on Tuesday, January 27. This also will apply to adults who apply to be a chaperone.

Security Deposit Payment

All security deposit payments must be either check or cash. Checks need to be made out to SRRHS. Please make sure that deposits and parent permission forms and chaperone agreement forms are in clearly marked envelopes with your name on them. It is also very helpful if your check has the words "NYC Music Trip" written on the memo portion of the check.

It will be helpful if one envelope includes more than one student security deposit and a parent chaperone security deposit that the names of all who are submitting their deposits are clearly marked on the outside of the envelope.

When will we know if we were accepted on the trip?

Students will be notified first by email. The email that you submit on your application will be the email your acceptance email will be sent. You will be instructed what to do on that email. Once we have verification that the students notified have verified their participation, we will notify both chaperones and students who were not accepted.

All of this will happen sometime between January 25-30. Please do not ask Mr. Mick or Mr. Campbell if you were accepted. We will make the announcements through email. If you do not get notified right away, do not panic. There may be situations where a student accepted chooses not to participate and you may be asked after the initial wave of announcements.
