Field Trip Early Check Out Process
Field trip season is upon us! Each grade level has scheduled and arranged for a field trip this year. Frequently families ask to take students home from the field trip. We prefer all students to ride the bus to and from the field trip, as this is part of the experience. If it is absolutely necessary, parents may request to check their child out from the field trip by coming by the office the week before the trip to get a Field Trip Check Out Receipt. Check-out requests must be made in person no later than 8 am on the morning of the trip.
You will need your photo ID. Our office staff will verify your identity and provide you with a signed Field Trip Check Out Receipt. You must bring this receipt on the field trip and give it to your child's teacher when you are ready to leave the field trip with your student. For student safety, teachers will not be able to release students to adults who do not have a Field Trip Receipt. This is for the protection of our students and to ensure that students are only released to a parent or guardian with authority to pick the student up from school. These arrangements are frequently changing and cannot be managed by your child's teacher. Please help us make this process as easy as possible by stopping by the office no later than 8 am on the morning of the trip.
If you have any questions, please give us a call at 512-355-2111.
We are excited to welcome Bivian Garza as our new registrar after Spring Break. Ms. Garza has experience working in schools.
Please be sure to email any attendance notes to her within 5 days of your child returning to school. Her email address is email@example.com.
