Itinerary and Mail Drops

Hello Mountain Classroom family and friends!

It's just about time to hit the road again with Spring '14 crew. You'll be able to see periodic updates about our progress and accomplishments via this blog, but here's a simple itinerary telling where we'll be and when. Also, if you would like to send letters or packages to anyone on Mountain, below are the places and dates we'll be able to pick up mail. Please be sure that mail is addressed as you see below. Students have limited storage space on the bus, so packages should be smallish. The life-sized stuffed boa can probably wait, right? Also, things can take a little while to work their way through the General Delivery system at the post offices, so be sure you're giving your letter or package enough time to get properly sorted. Otherwise, we might not see it until we get back to Proctor, where late mail will be forwarded to.
