Welcome families would be for the first 4/6 weeks when the students first arrive. This would allow time for the students to complete their enrollment in school and book their flights to arrive on time for the fall activities calendar and the start of school and also enable Forte to continue to look for a permanent host family for them during that 4/6 week window of time. If you have any other questions please reach out the heidi morlock. information below!
