6th Grade Chicago Field Trip- Reimbursement Information

Yorktown families,

Please see the email and information below regarding the Chicago trip. Please reach out to the company directly and begin this process.



Dear Shelly & Heath,

I want to thank you for your tremendous patience and for how you advocated for your school community during this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. We know what you have experienced recently felt uncharacteristic for your partnership with Brightspark, and we are glad we can now share a new path forward.

As discussed, we will honor our commitment to those who purchased the Refund Guarantee Protection (RGP). These families will still be refunded 100% of their payments made toward the trip price excluding the cost of RGP. Refund payments will be made in one lump sum and will take 6-8 weeks to process due to the increased volume.

For your travelers who have not purchased RGP, we would like to offer them a similar refund of all tour payments made less $34 (the cost of RGP for your tour). In order for us to make these payments to numerous schools, we’re going to ask for your families’ understanding on timing. Refunds will be processed by check in 4 equal, monthly installments beginning May 31st.
