2020 Florida Trip Refund Information


The UHS Band will not be able to reschedule our Florida trip for the spring of 2021.

 

We were able to recover 90% of the money paid. However, there were some travel agency costs that occurred prior to our planned departure date that were not refunded to the boosters and therefore cannot be returned.

 

Most money will be refunded beginning the week of September 21, 2020.

 

We were able to recoup the money for hotels and park tickets. However, instead of a refund for our bus transportation, we were only able to receive a voucher for a future trip. We will eventually refund this money, but cannot do so until we actually take the trip and collect money from new band members. We are now hoping to reschedule our trip during the 2021-22 school year.

 

The breakdown of refunds is as follows:

 

Total Trip Cost:                                                                                                                          $960/person

Less Band Booster Subsidy:                                                                                                    $160/person

Final Cost:                                                                                                                                 $800/person

 

 

Checks Distributed starting 9/21/2020: (park ticket and hotel $)                                         $490/person

Checks Distributed (bus voucher $) when band travels at a future date TBD:                   $230/person

Total Refund:                                                                                                                             $720/person

 


Monies that were paid via student band accounts will be returned to band accounts.
