Remember that if you are wanting to chaperone field trips this year, you will need a current background check on file with the school.

Chaperones will need to pay at the venues. Fees will be paid upon arrival.

Mystery Cave: $5 - Forestville: $6 total $11

Owl Center has a flat fee and limit to the number of people that can attend.

Quarry Hill: $10.

We are also requesting that chaperones provide their own transportation to each destination.

Students are required to ride the bus to the venue. If parents want to take their child afterwards, they need to have permission from the school's administration. Please email Superintendent Besel: Pbesel@gm.k12.mn.us

Students will need to bring a lunch and a drink . Snacks will be allowed on the bus.

Forestville/Mystery Cave: This is a rain or shine event. Please check the weather. It is cold in the cave, please send warm jackets and also nonslip shoes (athletic shoes with good soles.)

Permission slips for all field trips will be sent home next week.
