Field Trips

All teachers are encouraged to take their classes on co-curricular field trips throughout the year. It is our school's policy to use School District #23 buses whenever possible, but in some cases teachers may need volunteer parent drivers. In the event that parents are asked to drive, School District #23 policy requires that the vehicle carries a minimum of $1,000,000 liability insurance. Parents using their own vehicles to transport students are asked to report to the Office well before the scheduled trip where a form (good for the balance of the current school year) is to be completed. As part of this process, we must photocopy your driver's license and insurance papers.

There are not instructional fees charged. However, when classes go on field trips, monies may be collected to pay for admission fees and/or transportation charges. You will receive notification of the nature and cost of field trips from your child's teacher. Our PAC supports many of our school Field Trips through their generous fundraising efforts. CRIMINAL RECORDS CHECK CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL PARENT FIELD TRIP VOLUNTEERS. PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM BY SEPT. 30th.
