All these chaperones are properly fingerprinted with the District. The team will travel by plane and will be staying at a FIRST authorized hotel closest to the event. Students will be either walking or taking public transportation from the hotel to the Gordon Field House. This trip is scheduled during Spring Break so no school days will be missed.
