Events are carefully planned to enhance and support the curriculum and strive to make learning more relevant for students.
Acknowledge of Risk forms for field trips must be returned by the due date to allow staff to make final arrangements for transportation, class coverage, and payments to the service provider. Students are reminded that it is their responsibility to take the form home, have it completed/signed by a parent/guardian, and return it to school by the due date. Students not returning forms by the due date will not be permitted to attend the field trip. In the event a child’s form has not been returned, they would be placed in a different classroom to participate in other learning opportunities for the day.
No student will be refused the right to participate in any field trip due to a lack of funds if the situation is brought to the attention of the Administration.
When temperatures reach -25 Celsius or colder including the wind-chill factor, it is recommended that any outdoor-based off-site activities be postponed or cancelled. Note: a school may choose to postpone or cancel at a temperature warmer than this number depending on the activity or age of the students.
Off-Site Activities to indoor destinations within the City of Calgary can go ahead as long as the school is appropriately addressing the transportation hazards (for example, needing to wait for a replacement bus should a break-down occur).
