VERY IMPORTANT: If you are taking your student to the venue, you must fill out the additional permission called “Alternate Student Travel Form.” Since we are not providing a bus back, you do not need to fill out for getting picked up, and it will be understood that all will need to be picked up. Please complete the form online via your www.gpfaavm.com account no later than Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Please remember that alternate student travel forms must be filled out every time a student does not use district-provided transportation. (This is a district rule)
