Field Trips/Field Studies are important to the curriculum and all students are expected to attend. All students are required to have signed permission slips to be allowed to participate. Mass uniforms must be worn on all local day field trips unless otherwise stated. Students who do not participate in the grade level field studies programs will be assigned a project related to the field study. Administration reserves the right to not permit a student to participate on a Field Trip/Field Studies program. Should this occur, parents will be informed of the specific reason for this decision.
