REU Disney Trip - 2020

***IMPORTANT***

Trip Information

(Updated 3/17/2020)

Dear REU Families,

 

Here is the update for Disneyland Trip 2020.

 

FSUSD has canceled all field trips of any kind for the month of April. California Disneyland and California Adventure are also closed throughout the month of March.

 

Students are not scheduled to come back to school until April 20th.

 

For these reasons and uncertainties I am looking into the following option.

 

I have been speaking with Bill Wren (REU Booster President), our travel agent and the FSUSD administration about moving the Disney trip to June right after graduation.

 

All monies are safe and secure, we will keep you updated when we can announce new dates.

 

Thank you all for being flexible and understanding. We are trying our best to finish 2020 with a great trip.

 

All the best,

 

Scott Miller

We need chaperones for this trip.  If you feel you can fulfill the duties and responsibilities, send in the Disney Chaperone sign-up form along with your payment/deposit (all chaperones need to pay the full amount just like the students).

  • Each pair of chaperones will be assigned a group of students as their responsibility

  • Chaperones ride the bus for the whole trip

  • Chaperones will be responsible to distribute medication and administer basic first aid at the hotel and in the park to your assigned students

  • Check rooms each night and tape doors

  • Chaperones are expected to follow basic behavior rules at all times

All chaperones need to be fingerprinted at the FSUSD office and cleared (if you have not done so previously).

Payment Information

Disney payments can be made by check (payable to Rodriguez Music Boosters) and dropped off in the Booster mailbox in the band room.  Please make sure to put 'Disney' and Student's Name on the memo line.

Credit card payments can be made via the PayPal link below.  Please note that the payment will show a 'tax' on the receipt.  This is not a tax but is the recouping of the fees PayPal charges (Approx 3.25%) so that RHSEU receives the full intended amount.

Note:  There is a slight difference in the payment breakdown in the PayPal vs. the printed form.  Don't be worried about this - the important part (and purpose) is to break up the total cost into smaller payments.  The only requirement is that the full $693 is paid by the end of January.

PAYMENT PERIOD CLOSED

YOU MAY PAY FOR TICKETS BELOW UNTIL 2/21/2020

Additional Park-Hopper Tickets
