    8th Grade Cape Cod Trip 2023

    The Board of Education and Long Branch Middle School will continue the tradition of our 8th grade “Cape Cod” class trip to Boston & Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and Mystic, Connecticut on May 23rd-25th, 2023.   This trip is open to all 8th graders. However, there is only space for 45 students.  The following package is being offered to you if you wish for your child to participate. 

    Requirements for students to travel:

    ·         Student travelers are required to maintain grades of a C or better in ALL (including electives and physical education) classes starting from acceptance on the trip (October) until departure. If a student receives a grade below a C at the end of any marking period (on report card) the student will be removed from the trip.

             Students cannot have any behavioral referrals.  If a student does get a behavioral referral that leads to action from any Facilitator or Principal, the student will be removed from the trip.

    Important Notes. If a student is removed from the trip (or chooses not to travel) a full refund of monies paid will be reimbursed before April 1st, 2023.  After April 1st, 2023, unfortunately, NO monies paid will be reimbursed (including fundraised money if applicable) if a student is removed from the trip. Please consider this carefully before allowing student to travel!

    You will have the opportunity to purchase Travel Insurance (at additional cost)

    Procedures for trip:

    • The permission slip will reserve a space for your child.
    • A maximum of 45 students will be allowed to travel on this trip.
    • In the event that more than 45 students return a permission slip, initial travelers will be chosen at random via lottery. When the initial 45 students are chosen, all additional students will be placed on a waiting list in the event a spot does become available during the year. 

    A $100 deposit will be required within 5 days of student acceptance.  Information will be provided to students accepted and guardians for payment.
