Grade 8 Philadelphia Trip Refund Information
I am writing to you today with an update about payment refunds and travel vouchers. I spoke with Direct Travel today and am confirming the following:
·      Families will receive a refund of all money paid to Direct Travel with the exception of the $150.00 cancellation fee.
·      Each registered student will receive a $150.00 travel voucher. That voucher can only be used by that student or by a sibling and will expire after the 2020-2021 school year. 
·      Money will be returned in the form it was paid. If you paid by credit or debit card, the refund will go to the same card. If you paid by check, a check will be sent to you. 
·      All money earned towards the trip through wreath sales will be returned to the PTO. The PTO will then return that money directly to families. 
·      It is estimated that refunds will be processed within two weeks. Given the current realities, this is only an estimate.
