Paying for Field Trips
Field trips are considered instructional time. Students are expected to participate in all field trips and in-school activities as they are part of and support the educational curriculum. Students are figured into the initial pricing of a field trip and therefore are still expected to pay even though they may be absent on the day.
Field Trip Authorization
For all off-site field trips, a form needs to be completed and have your signature to show you have given consent. Students are not allowed to leave the school unless we have your signed permission.
Walking Field Trips
Your child’s teacher will inform you when local walking field trips take place, such as to Bowness Park. A generalized permission letter will be sent out to parents as part of the forms package welcoming students back to school in September. Consent is assumed for these short local types of walks. Please contact your child’s teacher with a reason if you do not wish your child to participate in a particular outing, as this is part of their educational programming.
