Dear Families & Friends,
It is hard to believe that almost six weeks have passed since your student embarked on this incredible adventure! It won’t be long until students will be boarding their planes back home. We are sure you are anxiously awaiting their arrival!
Below is a reminder of the group flight information for returning participants (all times are in local time zones). Please note: These arrival and departure times are subject to small changes, especially on the day of travel. We encourage families to keep an eye on your student’s flight details the day of travel by monitoring the flight online, especially for those families meeting their student at the airport. Any major changes to the flight details will be communicated to families directly by our staff, but smaller changes (deviations of an hour or less) will not.
PLEASE NOTE: Instructors traveling with your students on the group flight home will be sending students off in the direction of their post-program travel plans once the group proceeds through customs at their US airport of arrival and gathers their bags from the international flight. Instructors will not be accompanying students to their connecting gates if a student has domestic flights to get to; students are on their own to check-in to their domestic flights at the appropriate check-in desk and proceed through security to the gate for their domestic flight. Parents picking students up at the group airport of arrival should plan to be waiting outside of the international arrivals area about a hour after the group flight lands (to account for the time needed to proceed through customs and gather bags). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us this week!
