The time of year for student travel forms has arrived. In preparation for school breaks in November (11/22-11/30) and December (12/20-1/4), the Dean of Students Office is meeting with all boarding students at their dorm meetings this week to discuss the completion of travel forms. These forms apprise us of when, and by what method students are leaving from and returning to campus. We have informed boarders at their dorm meeting this week (11/2-11/7) what information is needed to complete the form. This will be followed by a meeting next week (11/9-11/11) in which the students complete the electronic form with their travel information.
If your daughter is travelling by air we provide limited shuttle service to Reagan National Airport (DCA) and Dulles (IAD). Once travel forms have been submitted we will create a shuttle schedule based on when the majority of students are travelling. The fee for the shuttle is $25. We do not provide shuttle service to return to campus. If the shuttle times are not convenient for your daughter we are able to arrange for a taxi, sedan, or Uber for her.
We ask that ALL boarders complete the travel form no matter how they are traveling off campus (even if they are being picked up by parents). The forms are due to the Dean of Students Office by Wednesday, November 12, so you should expect to be contacted by your daughter in the next few days to confirm details about her travel for Thanksgiving Break. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to contact the Dean of Students Office at DOS@madeira.org or 703-556-8211.Parents
