Students are not allowed to access the hotel swimming pool - even if a student on the trip is a lifeguard, it is still not permitted. The lifegaurd MUSTbe an employee of the hotel.
Conduct: This is a school sanctioned trip; therefore, students are expected to adhere to school and board policies. Any unacceptable behavior will result in a telephone call home and the student will be sent home immediately at the family's expense, via bus and/or train.
