In order to enhance curriculum, field trips may be planned by the faculty in conjunction with the unit of study, at various grade levels. A permission slip will be sent home prior to a scheduled trip. The permission slip must be signed and returned to the school prior to the trip. Most trips are “walking” trips and also require a signed permission slip. No students will be permitted to attend a field trip without the written permission slip. Verbal permissions will not be accepted.
Because of the responsibility involved, parents who are asked to chaperone field trips may not bring other children with them. We can not make any exceptions to this rule. Pre-schoolers are not permitted to ride school district buses.
To help insure your child’s welfare while participating in field trips, students will not be permitted to meet relatives or friends for lunch, or arrange alternate transportation when traveling on school approved and supervised trips. Your children are the school’s responsibility and their safety is of primary concern.
