HYP Spring Trip 2019 – New Orleans!

April 10-14, 2019, the HYP will travel to New Orleans, Louisiana. HYP will have a rehearsal sometime after school (exact time/location to be announced) on Wednesday, April 10th, and will board the bus and leave for New Orleans after that. Arrival in New Orleans will be in the morning of Thursday, April 11th. While in New Orleans HYP will stay at a hotel which will include breakfast and will have a swimming pool. On the sightseeing itinerary: Garden District, Jackson Square, French Quarter, Oak Alley Plantation, Mardis Gras World, National World War II Museum and Cafe Du Monde. HYP will have a 90-minute clinic before competing in the Heritage World Strides Festival. On Saturday, April 13th, after the competition, HYP will attend a masquerade ball at Mardis Gras World. Students may wish to bring a mask and dance clothing. The bus home will leave directly from the ball at around 11PM, and will return to Bloomington Sunday afternoon, April 14th.

All efforts have been made to keep the cost of this trip low for each student through HYP fundraising. Members must have two merits to participate in the trip, and must have payments completed on schedule, per the calendar below. Families may also pay in one lump sum on the first payment date, if desired.

While the preferred method of payment is cash or check, lump sum debit and credit card payment will also be accepted through the HYP online store. This is a secure transaction portal through Square and is the same credit card processor we use for debit/credit card transactions made at the HYP Boutique. The credit/debit card payment must be paid in full on or before the first payment due date (Jan 11). The option to pay online will be removed from the website on Jan 12. Payments made online will incur a small convenience fee which will be noted on the website and receipt. Please note the student(s) you are paying for in the note section so we can properly note this on your trip account. Please send a copy of the receipt to Ms. Enzinger. Lump sum credit/debit card payment may be made at this link.
