Field Trips

Field trips are an integral part of the curriculum and an extension of what is being taught in the classroom. The school requires that all activities outside the school/parish site be selected, planned, organized and conducted in the context of the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional or physical development of students and the safety and security of all participants. Parents must provide a signed consent form for their child to attend any trip, outing, or extra curricular activity. Handwritten, faxed, general consent notes, or verbal consent does not constitute consent or replace the school’s official signed consent form.

Volunteer drivers and supervisors for field trips attend a mandatory field-trip meeting before each trip. Drivers must provide Certification of Insurance/Driver’s Abstract and a Criminal Record Check before volunteering to be a driver. A copy of the complete field trip policy which sets out expectations for drivers and supervisors is available through the school secretary.
