Discussion

Bayside High School NJROTC is requesting School Board approval to conduct a field trip to Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., on May 2-6, 2012.

Bayside High NJROTC is providing an opportunity for cadets to tour Marine Corps Base Quantico on May 3 to include HMX-1 (President's helicopter squadron), Weapons Training Battalion, Night Integrated Training Environment Facility and the K9 Training Unit.  On May 4 the cadets will tour the National Museum of the Marine Corps in the morning and be in Washington, D.C. for tours of the Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery for a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and the Smithsonian Institute in the afternoon.  The cadets will return to Quantico in the evening.  On May 5 they will return to Washington for tours of the Capitol and numerous National monuments and museums.

Forty-four (44) Naval Science I, II, III, and IV cadets and five (5) adult (male and female) chaperones plan to travel by Travelynx Charter Bus.  The participants will be staying at the Crossroads Inn on MCB Quantico.

The group plans to leave Bayside High School at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, and return at approximately 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 6.  Two (2) school days will be missed (May 3 and 4).  The cost will be $217.50 per cadet.  The cadets conducted fundraising activities during August-December 2011 to defer individual expenses.  There will be no cost to the District.
