Bayside High School NJROTC is requesting School Board approval to conduct a field trip to Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina; U.S.S. Yorktown at Patriots Point, South Carolina; and Fort Sumter, South Carolina, on November 13-16, 2013.

Forty-four cadets and five chaperones (both male and female) plan to travel by charter bus.  The participants will be staying at MCRD, Parris Island, on November 13-14, and at La Quinta Inn, Charleston, South Carolina, on November 15.  The cadets will be in uniform while at Parris Island.

The group plans to leave Bayside High School at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13, and return at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 16.  Two school days will be missed (November 14-15).  The cost will be approximately $145 per cadet.  The cadets will conduct fundraising activities during September-October to defer individual expenses.  There will be no cost to the school or District to conduct this field trip.
