The school takes frequent educational field trips. They are planned from time to time as an enhancement to the curriculum. These trips are part of the school program and are not optional experiences for students. Therefore, attendance is required on planned class field trips. The cost for field trips is divided equally among those attending, and must be paid in advance when required. Parents will be informed of the trip. Students should pack lunches for these trips. Students who do not adequately follow school rules may be restricted from attending field trips. Behavior on any school-sponsored trip must be the very best and we expect students to recognize their place in the larger community and to act responsibly and respectfully toward their neighbors.
