If Mark is speaking for your school, and more than 150 miles from home, he'll more than likely be spending the night in the vicinity the evening before. And always staying over the night of, if he's presenting a Family Reading Night for you. If you should have an arrangement with an area hotel, please let us know as in this time of escalating travel prices this is a great help.(For instance: If one of your parents operates a hotel or a hotel partners with the school by donating the night or significantly discounting it, please do let us know.) Suitable hotel types are Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Fairfield Inn, Country Inn and Suites by Carlson, Bed and Breakfast Inns or the independent equivalents. (The rule of thumb if you like it, find it safe and would stay there yourself, then Mark probably would as well.)
Please understand, this is not a requirement, however if you have this option available, Mark is delighted to take you up on it. Thanks so much!
