Dear Parents,
You should have received an email from me in regards to our 2020 trip (posted below). I did not make this decision lightly. It was brought to my attention that if we went in September we would not be able to take part in most of the activities that we do in New York. I would love to have your child experience the trip as it should be.

Dear travelers and families,
I hope this email finds you well, safe, and healthy!
I'm writing to update you on the status of the current Fall 2020 East Coast Trip. After careful consideration and the current uncertainty of travel over the next few months, I have made the decision to postpone our trip to Spring Break 2021. I truly hope that this information will come as a relief as our community tackles this global health challenge.
New Travel Dates:
The new dates of travel will be April 9-14, 2021. If you plan to travel on our rescheduled travel dates, no action is required on your part as your child will automatically be enrolled on our new travel dates.
I truly hope that you will all be able to attend this trip that we have planned for so long. It will mean so much to all of you that have gone through what you did and to still be a part of this incredible experience that you will still remember for a lifetime? the date has just been postponed. While I hope that all of you will be able to attend, I realize that may not be possible for some of you. Therefore, as previously mentioned, WorldStrides is amending its cancelation policies through Oct. 1, 2020.
For Participants that Purchased the Full Refund Program: participants will continue to be protected by this investment through our trip's date change. If participants need to cancel at any time up to the day before travel, they will still receive all monies back.
For Participants that Opted out of the Full Refund Program: you will also get a similar cash refund (including deposit), with an adjustment of $249 for just a small portion of WorldStrides' unrecoverable costs. Fees incurred are non-refundable.
This amended cancelation policy is good through Oct. 1, 2020.
Additionally, for those who will be traveling on the Spring Break 2021 trip and currently do not have the Full Refund Program (FRP), you have up to Oct. 1, 2020 to enroll and be protected through the trip's date change! I highly recommend you sign up for this, as canceling or signing up is the same cost, but you will be protected throughout the trip change.
To enroll in FRP or cancel your trip please contact customer service at (800-468-5899) or you can send an email including Trip ID and Customer ID to WorldStrides at [email protected].
Once again, if you plan to travel on our rescheduled travel dates, no action is required on your part as your child will automatically be moved over to the new dates.
Please get back to me with any questions you may have.
Sincerely,
Ms. Denisha Connet - DC Trip Program Leader

I wanted to share in case you didn't get the email today:

Dear Travelers,

I want to thank you for your tremendous patience as we've navigated this situation with our partners at WorldStrides. I've just spoken with my Account Manager there, and I hope you'll be pleased with how they've cleared a path forward here that will better suit our families!

New Travel Dates (Fall Break 2020)
I have been working with my Account Manager on our best options and due to the uncertainty of June, we have decided that the best path forward for our group will be to postpone the trip to "Fall Break". The new dates of travel will be Sept. 26-30, 2020! If you plan to travel on our rescheduled travel dates, no action is required on your part as your child will automatically be enrolled on our new travel dates.

I'm really looking forward to the postponed trip and finally being able to come together once again to share in this incredible travel experience and rite of passage! I believe this trip will be even more meaningful for all of us once we get through this life-altering event. You have worked so hard and I know we are all missing out on so much right now, and this trip is going to be a great reward after getting through this difficult time "together".

For the few students who are unable to make the postponed travel dates, WorldStrides will honor the Full Refund Program, as we've already discussed.
However, here is the change: For those who did not purchase FRP, you will also get a similar cash refund (including deposit), with an adjustment of $249 for just a small portion of WorldStrides' unrecoverable costs. Fees incurred are non-refundable.

If you have already indicated your intention to cancel to WorldStrides in writing, no action is required on your part to begin the refund process and families can expect to receive refunds in 6-8 weeks from your scheduled departure date. If you need additional clarification, you can reach out directly to WorldStrides' Customer Support at 800-468-5899 or email [email protected]

Once again, if you are planning to travel no action is required on your part and you will be moved to the new travel dates. If you have recently cancelled because you could not make the June date, but now want to go, please let me know and I will help you to facilitate re-instating your trip.

All the best,

Ms. Connet

Good Evening,

Today has been a difficult day with making hard decisions in regards to our trip. I wanted to let you know that I am working on rescheduling our trip. I should know by the end of the weekend as to when we will travel. I know that some of you have made summer plans and might not be able to accommodate the change. Please be assured that World Strides will work with you on refunds. I really want this for your kids. Thank you for being so patient.
