    A Note on Flights
    Air travel is unpredictable. Although we can ensure that our group arrives to the airport with ample time and follow all airline instructions, there may still be instances when a flight is delayed or cancelled due to weather, mechanical problems, airline strikes etc. In such an event we are not financially responsible for costs incurred by missed connections. Regardless, please know that should flight delays/cancellations occur we will do everything we can to get students home in a timely manner and will do our best to keep family members updated on developments.
