How many reservations is each school eligible for?
There are 100 tickets per grade grouping for the entire year. Grade Groupings: PreK-K, 1st-2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th-7th, 8th, 9th-12th.
If I only need 65 tickets, should I ask for 100?
NO. As we have a limited number of tickets for every event, we ask that schools only request what they need.
Does the 100 ticket limitation include chaperones? Yes.
What if I have less students attend the event than I requested?
Schools must notify our office of ticket reductions 30 days in advance in writing. Schools will be invoiced for the cost of the unused tickets and transportation if there are costs incurred.
How do I cancel a trip?
Trips must be cancelled 30 days in advance. To cancel a trip, contact the AFES Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. All cancellations must be made in writing.
NOTE: Your school will be invoiced for the cost of the tickets and transportation if fees are incurred.
What if the bus does not arrive on time?
If the bus is more than 15 minutes late please call the DC Collaborative offices at 202.879.9327. Make sure that you check for the bus all entrances at your school.
May students eat on the bus, or after a trip?
No. Please arrange for your students to eat prior to the trip, and/or notify the school cafeteria that students will be eating after the trip. Schools may not ask bus drivers to take them anywhere for lunch.
