Below are links which may be helpful for students and parents when making airline or train reservations. Once you have made your reservations, please make sure to let Ryan Hockertlotz know your travel plans so that he can help coordinate your ground transportation.
Ryan coordinates bus service to airports and to the Brattleboro train station. Before and after major school vacations, school vans will provide bus and train pickup in Brattleboro, but students will need to sign up with Ryan so that reservations can be made. In the absence of pickup arrangements, you may need to hire a taxi. Please resist the temptation to make travel arrangements during times which would jeopardize valuable class time. Questions about irregular departures for a break or return from a break should be directed to Michael Sardinas, Dean of Students.
To avoid double-booking and costly misunderstanding, please coordinate all student travel plans with Ryan Hockertlotz. The school is usually able to negotiate reduced rates and we run some airport shuttles to Boston and Hartford airports for school breaks. We also run a shuttle bus to New York City’s Penn Station.
