Can my parents drive me home?

Can my family ride the bus?

Who can be a chaperone?
Any guardian who is willing to be responsible for a small group of students during the day. Chaperones may not be responsible for any other children, other than those in choir. We need about 7-8 chaperones for this trip!! Chaperones do not have to ride the rides. Chaperones who wish to ride on the rides will pay $20 to cover their own wrist band. Sign up using the registration form below.
Can I check out to my parents then check back in to a chaperone group at the end of the day?
NO! Once a student is checked out, he/she is checked out for good. However, your family may walk around with a group. Chaperones are not allowed to watch students who have already checked out.
Can I check out to a friend’s parents?
NO! Students will not be released to any adult other than a parent or legal guardian.
What do we wear to the park?
You will wear your choir t-shirt with shorts and tennis shoes. Please liberally apply sunblock before you dress!!!
How much money will my child need in the park?
$20 is recommended to cover the cost of food. However, there will be arcade games and souvenirs that will cost additional money. If you wish for your child to do these "extra" things, you may send extra money. No more than $40 is recommended. Chaperones and staff are not responsible for lost money.
What happens if we change our mind and can’t go to Pleasure Pier after all?
Unfortunately, the ride wristband is date specific, so money cannot be refunded.
What happens if I have too many unexcused absences after I have already paid for the trip?
You will not be allowed to go on the trip and money will not be returned. Mrs. Ramsey will be very sad about this!! See above question about reimbursements. BE CAREFUL with your absences and tardies!! Please review the registration guidelines from the Hubenak Choir website for the strict policy regarding excused and unexcused absences.
What happens if it rains?
Please pray that we have good weather!! Rain or shine – we are going! Many times the weather in Galveston is different than the weather in Richmond. Many times the weather clears up unexpectedly. All weather decisions will be made for the safety of the students. Last minute changes will be communicated through texting in Charms.
What happens if I earn an N (3 or more marks in one area of conduct) before we leave for the trip?
You may not go. Mrs. Ramsey will be very disappointed.
What happens if I miss the May 8th evening performance at Fulshear High School?
All performances are required in order to go on the field trips. Students must be present for the evening performance at at FHS in order to go to Pleasure Pier.
Can I change my check-out plans at the last minute?
Check out plans may be changed up until Friday, May 4th. Students may not change their plans the morning of the trip or at the park. Chaperones should not be put in this position.
When will we get the tickets?
Wrist bands will be distributed at the gate. ONLY students and chaperones will be included in the group order. All family members will purchase their tickets at the gate. Family walk-on only tickets are available if you are not interested in riding rides.
What can I take on the bus?
Students are encouraged to bring only what they can carry in their pockets or plan on leaving on the bus (a school bus). Students will not be able to go back and forth from the park to the bus. Valuables will be left on the bus and are not the responsibility of the school or the school district. The trip is only about 1.5 hours and you will not want to carry a lot as you go on and off rides, so please take that into consideration before you pack.
