Unaccompanied Student Travel
The management of travel plans is imperative for the safety of our students. Brentwood’s travel system in MySchool requires parents/guardians to log into the Parent Portal throughout the year to provide details regarding their child's travel.
Details should include departure, arrival times, flight, and/or ferry information, and will allow our houseparents and operations team to ensure the safe arrival to and departure from our Vancouver Island points of entry.
Students traveling as unaccompanied minors will require a Brentwood staff member to assume responsibility for them at the airport. The staff member is required to stay and wait at the airport until the plane has taken off. There is an additional hourly cost of $25 per hour for this service.
Please continue here for more details specifically regarding student travel.
