At various time in the year, classes or groups of students may be scheduled for trips away from school. In that event, a permission slip will be sent home with details of the trip. Field trip fees must be paid in advance and are not refundable. These trips are an extension of classroom learning and are a valuable part of the student’s education. Parents serving as chaperones may not bring younger or older siblings on a field trip because it may compromise the chaperone’s ability to adequately perform their duties.
