QUEBEC TRIP Travel Issues

March 12, 2012



Dear Parents of B Naturals, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Symphonic Band and Treble Choir.

I am deeply sorry to be writing this – just when I thought I had everything covered about traveling with the music department.

Anyway, I just got off the phone with the State Department regarding a question that was raised at our Mandatory Parent Meeting on April 4, 2012.
I have found out that the permission forms you filled out need to be notarized and that I cannot use photo copies of birth ceritficats as they must have the raised seal.
Therefore: I will need a copy or the original birth certificate. A passport will do but your child will need to carry it. I can carry the passport for them and distribute it before we get to the port of entry (Canada and returning to the US) if you are afraid they will lose it.

On Tuesday April 10, 2012 Mrs. Kelly Fontaine will be here to notarize the permission forms from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. as you will need to sign them in front of the notary. Mrs. Bastien will also be collecting either copies or original birth certificates and passports if you do not want your child to carry them.
Again, I am very sorry.

 
Thank you for your time, patience and consideration in this matter.

I can be reached at 886-1265 or email gbastien@alvirnehs.org if you have any questions.



Mr. B
