Dear _____________________________________,

Thank you for agreeing to chaperone the Wooster High School Instrumental Music Department’s trip to New York City from April 11th to 14th, 2002.

The cost of the trip will be $525. It is possible that this amount could increase by as much as $80. This is due to the uncertainty of the Mets schedule and would effect the final payment. One important purpose of this letter is to inform you of a need for a $100 non-refundable deposit due on September 28 from every student and chaperone. The entire payment schedule is as follows:

September 28  $100.00 Deposit
November 15  $200.00 2nd Payment
February 20  $225.00 3rd Payment (or balance)

Checks should be made payable to : "WHS Music Parents"

The $525 cost is for four people per room. If you and another chaperone would like to stay two to a room, please let us know as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this would mean that you would need to pay an additional $125 per person (for a total of $650). This extra $125 would be due at the November 15 payment date.

Please consider money in your son or daughter’s trip account to be available for you as well. In other words, any money above and beyond the cost of the trip that is in their accounts may be used for your payment as well.

Also, please make plans to be available for a special meeting with all chaperones prior to the trip. The meeting will take place immediately following the 8:00PM Music Parents Meeting on March 12, 2002 in B136 at the High School. Please make plans to be at this brief meeting. We will discuss issues specific to the role of chaperones and their responsibilities during the trip. The trip will also be discussed in detail during the regular parent meeting, so many of your general questions will be answered there as well.

Thanks again for your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the High School (345-8602).
