4. Will they be allowed to bring their electronics, such as cd players
We will be spending a good deal of time on the bus, so students are encouraged to bring items to keep them entertained on the trip. Additionally, there is a DVD system with several televisions placed on the bus for age/grade appropriate �in flight� movies.Back to Top
5. What can and can't they bring on the trip?
A packing list will be issued before the trip with suggestions on what they need to take (sun screen, bug spray, tooth brush, etc.) Prohibited are any items unnecessary to the enjoyment of the trip as well as anything that would conflict with Catoosa County policy.Back to Top
6. How much spending money do you suggest?
Kids will spend as much as you send with them! How much money is needed for souvenirs is at your discretion. Students will not need to take any money except a few dollars for fast food on the trip home. Even then, we will be stopping to eat in Macon and many kids just wait until we get home to eat dinner. We encourage everyone to pack a few snacks to take on the bus.Back to Top
