We are proud to announce that Grand Classroom is safely and successfully running trips again. Turning the page, we are seeing incredible demand for travel for the 2021 - 2022 school year as vaccinations are available down to age 12 and the CDC has updated youth travel guidance. Many groups are choosing to travel domestically whether by air or motor coach. International travel is also resuming as countries reopen to US travelers. Your safety remains our top priority and we are staying abreast of all CDC guidelines, safety protocols, and re-opening information at each of our destinations. We can't wait to welcome you back to the adventure of a lifetime!
How are you deciding where it is safe to travel next school year? Grand Classroom is monitoring local and global developments including information regarding closures and reopenings of key sites on tour. 
How will you keep students safe while traveling? And what if they get sick on tour?
We are updating our staff and tour guides on the CDC’s best practices to identify, treat, and prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition we are working with our vendors - including airlines, hotels, motorcoaches, restaurants, and tour sites - to address increased hygiene measures.
If a participant gets sick on tour, we have contracted with a telemedicine service to ensure that students or adult participants are evaluated quickly and receive appropriate medical care if necessary. All participants on tour are encouraged to follow best practices to minimize the risks of falling ill including: frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, avoiding contact with anyone who is ill, and carrying hand sanitizer.
