Handbook: Field Trips

    • Field trips are considered to be an extension of classroom learning. Advance notification will be given with the date of the trip, cost of the trip, and the deadline for payment.  Generally, the deadline will be several weeks before the actual trip.  A permission slip signed by the parent/guardian is required for all field trips.  Once bus arrangements and reservations have been made, refunds cannot be given.  The administrators and teachers will also set a behavior standard for attendance.  Students who receive repeated disciplinary action may be barred from participating in that activity.  Field trips may be forfeited in these cases.  Siblings may not accompany chaperones on field trips. No child may participate in a field trip that is not a Stonebridge Elementary student.  This includes babies, younger siblings, or children from other schools.
    • Teachers select chaperones on a lottery basis, a first come/first serve, or a rotation basis in order to be fair to all parents, grandparents, and guardians.
    • Chaperones are required to complete a volunteer background clearance. Directions can be found on the Secure Volunteer Website
