Field Trips

On October 15th, based on the recommendation of the Superintendent and the Board Curriculum Committee, the Board of Education approved the following adjustments to district field trips. The changes are as follows:


  • One field trip per grade. All grade levels in each elementary school will attend the same trip. Whenever possible the trip will be coordinated between grades.
  • All trips must be specifically and directly connected to a curriculum goal/essential learning for the grade level.
  • No swimming (trips, classes, parties) under school field trips.


The above information can be found on the district webpage, Board of Education tab -- Board Minutes-- Minutes January 2018-December 2018
