6/29- Mon. Arrival in evening. Welcome reception upon arrival at the Pavilion @ Lake San Marcos (1105 La Bonita Drive, San Marcos, 92078). Their flight is scheduled to arrive at 4:10pm. By the time they get through Customs (if there is no lost luggage), we are usually on the bus between 5:30-6:00. We should arrive at Lake San Marcos between 7-7:30. Please try to arrive by 7:00 to be sure you are there when the students arrive. Some students may feel sad if their family is not there when they arrive. There will be a “Welcome” cake, and snacks. Some students are hungry upon arrival, and others are just tired. If you want to have something available for them to eat if they are hungry, that would be great, but many just want to sleep.

We will have the Coaster tickets for the entire group, so they do not need to buy tickets. If you are further south and would like to drop the students off and pick them up at the Carlsbad Poinsettia station, please let me know and I will let you know the departure and arrival times. If you are late for the train, unfortunately, you will need to drive the students to meet us in San Diego, as the train waits for no one, so PLEASE BE ON TIME! We will return to O’side Transit Center @ 5:55pm. For those at the Poinsettia stop, you MUST be there when we arrive on the way back from SD, waiting at the train, or we won’t let them off the train and you will have to pick them up in O’side. Students should plan to have dinner with their host family.
