March 13th - Update on Senior Trip

March 13, 2020

Dear Parents and Seniors,
The senior trip to Disney World scheduled for April 1- 6, 2020, will proceed as planned. In light of the concerns regarding the coronavirus and travel, our travel agent has advised us that Disney Worlds Resorts has been very proactive with addressing safety and health measures. If you would like more information regarding their measures, please visit their website at: www.wcv.com.
We were also provided with the following statement from the company:
“The CDC has advised that the immediate health risks to the general American public is considered low at this time. In fact, the CDC has been explicit in stating that they are not advising against travel domestically, therefore at the present time, all domestic trips are operating as scheduled and “at this time” there would be no refund if a student does not travel”.
For those schools who purchased the recommended Travel Insurance for all trip participants and those individual students who purchased the optional recommended Travel Insurance and included the “Cancel for Any Reason” option, students can cancel their trip “For any Reason” up to 48 hours before trip departure and receive 75% of the trip cost refund from Travel Guard Insurance Company.
We will keep you informed should it become necessary to make changes regarding the trip. Also, please be reminded that there is a mandatory meeting on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria for parents and students attending the senior trip. Your attendance is required as you will need to sign a permission form, and be provided with the rules, expectations and requirements for attending the trip. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Katie Alexander at alexanka@winslow-schools.com.

Regards,
Mr. Kurtis Marella, Principal
Winslow Township High School
