ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

ELIGIBILITY:

RHAM High School rules and Board of Education policies apply on all trips associated with the RHAM High School Ski and Snowboard Club.

RHAM Ski & Snowboard Club has the same academic standards of eligibility as athletics does: A student may participate if he/she has maintained a “C-” average with no “F’s” for the marking period preceding the commencement of the activity. Students’ grades will be checked at the close of each marking period to determine continued eligibility. Payment cannot be refunded in this situation.

PAYMENT:

You may pay with cash or check, although a check is preferred. If you are paying with a check, please make the check payable to RHAM HIGH SCHOOL, and please write the student’s name in the memo. All fees must be paid in full at the time of registration, no partial payment will be accepted.

PAY-TO-PARTICIPATE:

A $30 club fee is required. If you have not already paid one, this fee needs to be paid separately. Link to pay4schoolstuff

PERSONNEL:

All RHAM ski trips are chaperoned by at least three certified RHAM staff members. The official advisors are Ms. Osowiecki and Mr. Rambone. Students can usually find us in room 633 or 126, and parents can leave messages for me on my voice mail: 860 576 8194 or email: rhamhsskiclub@gmail.com

Parents are invited and encouraged to join us on our trips if space is available. The incentives can be very enticing!

PICK-UP TIMES:

The high school is often not open when we return from a ski trip. It is very important that you plan to have a ride waiting for you at the designated return time.

REFUNDS:

Ski Sundown will provide a full refund if Ms. Osowiecki/Mr. Rambone is notified by Dec 11, 2015. In the event of injury or sickness, Ski Sundown will provide a prorated reimbursement if the request is made through Ms. Osowiecki/Mr. Rambone prior to the close of the season. No Shows for Saturday trips will be refunded the cost of their ticket, but will still be held responsible for the cost of their bus seat.

RENTALS:

If you have opted for rental equipment, (either skis or snowboards), please complete section 3 of the Group Participant Information & Program Agreement. Ski Sundown handles rentals VERY WELL, and has the equipment ready for students upon arrival. However, renting at the large resorts on Saturday mornings is very inconvenient and time consuming. You may want to consider renting at one of our local shops prior to departure so that your child may get the most out of his or her ski day.

IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND:

We pay Ski Sundown in one lump sum in November, and there is no way that RHAM Ski Club can have that money refunded. However, your access pass will be valid during any weekday, non-holiday period during which you may make up your time at Ski Sundown. If you are injured or move away and are unable to attend future trips to Ski Sundown on a permanent basis, notify Ms. Osowiecki in writing so that I may initiate the refund process with Ski Sundown.

If you cannot attend a trip other than to Ski Sundown, there will be NO REFUND of the amount of the purchase price that goes toward payment of the bus unless your seat is filled. The buses are reserved and paid for well in advance. However, it IS possible to refund the actual purchase price of the lift ticket (at the group rate). YOU MUST NOTIFY MS. OSOWIECKI or MR. RAMBONE, and I will attempt to find someone to substitute for you. By notifying me early, you will increase the chances of me finding an available substitute for you.

HELMETS: Will be required for all skiers and riders participating in RHAM Ski & Snowboard Club activities.

(non-compliance could result in suspension from future ski trips without refund)
