Tuesday, March 22-   10:40 am  United nonstop flight to Nashville   5:09 pm Arrive Nashville.  8:00 pm.  Arrive Mayfield

Based on 50 participants, the cost of the trip is tentatively set at $895.00.  This includes all transportation, hotel accommodations for 4 nights, and activities. The cost of the trip includes most meals but does NOT include all meals.   United does not have free baggage if you need to pack more than a carry-on.

Students may sign up on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to students in grades 9-12.

Adults are also encouraged to sign up early, but the combination of students going and the type of hotel rooms we have booked, will help determine our need for chaperones.  

  • We are currently collecting the $300.00 deposit.  
  • 2nd payment of $300.00 is due before December 1.  
  • Final payment will be due  before February 1.  

Checks should be made payable to Mayfield Enrichment Program and delivered to Sarah Dunn at MES.     

Money is transferable before the date given by the airline, but will not be refunded after the date given by the airline.

Please contact Sarah Dunn  (sarah.dunn@mayfield.kyschools.us) or Mary Seay ([email protected]) if you have concerns, questions, or suggestions for this trip.

We are planning this trip with great optimism.  We are working to make sure that activities reserved would be refundable in the unfortunate scenario that this trip would not be able to take place at the given dates.
