Field trips are an important way to support the curriculum and the enhance the student’s learning through hands-on real-world experiences. Our local trips consist of libraries, fire, and police stations, grocery stores, and parks. We also attend trips outside of the local area, including but not limited to historical landmarks, museums, zoos, petting farms, and the circus.
We do require written permission for your child to attend these trips and we will notify you in advance of all trips. A field trip permission form will be required for each child and each individual trip. The form must be completed in full and will release the school from any liability and to authorize any medical treatment needed.
A fee will be charged for all trips to defray the cost for entrance fees and transportation. Due to state laws and basic safety concerns, some students may be required to have a car seat or a booster seat for each trip. Also, all students must be in full uniform. However, there may be specific trips where street clothes or a PE uniform is required. In these cases, you will be notified by the classroom teacher or office staff.
