Home / 8th Grade Academic Field Trip to Montreal


If you have any questions about any of this information, please contact MaryBeth O’Donnell at modonnell@longtrailschool.org or (802) 867-5717 x204.

Any eighth graders who wish to participate

Montreal, Canada

In order to go, all students need a current passport OR US border pass card.

Passport applications for children under 16 must be submitted in person at an authorized passport acceptance facility. Both parents or guardians must appear with the child. If both parents/guardians cannot be present, see parental consent for additional document requirements.

MANCHESTER VILLAGE POST OFFICE [362-1170] and PAWLET POST OFFICE [325-3065] can submit these directly. They also can take the photo for you. Passports typically take about 6 weeks to process.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.  I RECOMMEND GETTING THE PROCESS STARTED PRIOR TO FEBRUARY BREAK.  OTHERWISE, YOU ARE TAKING THE RISK OF NOT RECEIVING IT IN TIME.  You may need an appointment to apply for the passport.

PARENT AUTHORIZATION FORM (The authorization is necessary to ensure we have the proper authorization to leave and return to the country.)
