Gettysburg/Washington, DC Trip
May 30 – June 2, 2017
General Information / Instructions
Chaperones:
This trip is staffed by Revere Local Schools employees only (all or the majority of them being middle school
teachers/employees). We also take a medical professional with us each year. If we cannot find a medical
professional who is also employed by the school, we will ask a parent who works in the medical field. If you are a
medical doctor, nurse, or EMT and would be interested in going on the trip if an opening arises, please email
Mrs. Stuthard at mstuthard@revereschools.org .
Luggage:
1. Students may only bring 2 pieces of luggage – 1 carry-on (preferably a backpack) and 1 suitcase (to be
stored under the bus).
2. All bags must have an I.D. marker on the outside.
Clothing:
1. Considering this is a school-related trip, the students will be expected to follow the school dress code.
2. Pack enough clothes for 3 days and be prepared for a variety of weather (jeans, shorts, t-shirts, sweatshirts,
etc.). The night before we leave, check www.weather.com for the latest weather report for Gettysburg, PA
and Washington, DC.
3. Bring a light-weight jacket.
4. Comfortable walking shoes are a must!
5. A more detailed list will be given in the final packet, but here are some packing items to think about ahead
of time:
• Comfortable shoes
• Rain gear (UMBRELLA)
• Shorts and shirts that are school dress code appropriate
• A watch
• Backpack (highly recommended to carry camera, umbrella, jacket, etc.)
Cameras:
Know how to operate your camera before we leave. It is imperative that all students know how to turn the flash off!
Bus/Motion Sickness:
If you have a history of either of these problems, we will be able to arrange your seat close to the front of the bus. A
medication form will be sent home in April.
Medications:
If you need to take medicine on the trip, medication forms must be filled out specifically for this trip. They will be
sent home in the final packet in April. *All prescription medication requires a physician’s signature on the form.
Parents will have the option whether or not they want their child to carry and administer the medicine, or if they
want the chaperone to carry and administer. These forms are available now on the trip website at
http://websites.revereschools.org/websites/rms/mstuthar/default.html. If your child has a doctor’s appointment
anytime this school year, take these forms with you and have the doctor fill it out.
Emergency Situations:
We will discuss trip safety with the students in the spring. Should you become separated from the group, locate a
police officer, guard, or official at the place being visited. Describe your situation and where you were last with your
group. Your absence will be noted by your chaperones, and we will check with the same authorities. Keep your copy
of the itinerary with you at all times!
Code of Conduct During the Trip:
1. Loud talking, shouting, improper language, pushing, etc. are not permitted.
2. Comments are not to be directed to pedestrians, motorists, or bus drivers. This is in poor taste, and it is
dangerous.
3. Eating will be permitted on the bus and in the hotel rooms, provided that trash is confined to wastepaper
baskets. Food, snacks, and drinks (chips, pop, water, candy, etc.) can be taken along on the trip.
4. Lack of time prevents loitering at rest stops or waiting in long lines to make purchases.
5. The bus is climate controlled; therefore windows are to be kept closed. Nothing should be tossed out the
windows.
6. Electronic devices (IPods, etc.) may be taken on the trip; however, HEADPHONES MUST BE USED!
These devices may only be used on the bus (when there is no tour going on or other instructions
being given) and in the hotel rooms. STUDENTS are responsible for all valuables taken on the trip.
On a trip of this nature, students are required to be on their best behavior at all times. In the event that a student
cannot abide by the rules, the following actions may be taken:
• Verbal warning
• Removal of certain trip privileges
• Immediate call to parents
• If a *serious incident occurs, the student will be sent home on public transportation at the expense of the
parent/guardian. This stipulation would also include any expenses incurred as a result of such disciplinary
action.
*See “Grounds for Suspension or Expulsion” in the Student Handbook/Assignment book. Other behavior
may be considered “a serious incident” even if it is not listed on the above pages including any behavior that
may jeopardize the safety of one or more of the students.
Physical Nature of the Trip:
We do a tremendous amount of walking on this trip! (Last year in one day alone, we walked about 8 miles). Please
be mentally and physically prepared for this! Everyone goes everywhere we go as a group, and we run a very tight
schedule. Comfortable shoes are absolutely necessary.
Hotel:
The hotel is like most other standard hotels in the world. It has rooms with two double beds as well as rooms with
king sized beds. We take up a good portion of the hotel. All of the rooms also have a pull-out couch bed. Therefore,
some students will end up with a total of 3 beds in their room, and some students will end up with a total of 2 beds in
their room. Each room has 4 students in it. Costs are listed on the first page of this packet for triple, double, and
single rooms.
Communication:
Due to the large number of students attending this trip, we request that you only call the hotel in the case of
an emergency. The hotel’s phone number is listed on the itinerary. Nowak Travel will be updating their website
with our arrival time on June 2. Please check this message, because arrival times are approximate. The trip
coordinators will also be in direct contact with the school administrators at all times. CELL PHONES ARE
PERMITTED. More specific rules and restrictions will be discussed when the final packet comes out. The cell
phone number of the administrator attending the trip will be listed in the final packet.

Students are permitted to bring spending money on the trip. The itinerary outlines the activities for the trip. All
transportation, lodging, meals and admissions are included in the price. However, students may want spending
money for souvenirs, etc. STUDENTS are responsible for all money and valuables brought on the trip.
