Student Supervision Standards and Parent Participation

CHRIST THE REDEEMER CATHOLIC SCHOOLS - FIELD TRIP PROCEDURES


Please note, some activities replicate a classroom setting (example: teacher led co-curricular classes) and in such situations, the Field Trip Supervision Ratios will not apply. Ratios similar to a traditional classroom will apply.

The CFL welcomes parents to participate in activities and events whenever possible. Some events require a parent supervise every participant; other events/venues restrict parent participation. The role of the parent is included in each event description. Please see below for an explanation of the rational.

1. Parent Participation is Mandatory

In this scenario, the students will require one on one assistance to complete the task or the venue has asked us to have a parent with each child. A CFL staff member will be there to assist the event leader, check in students and parents, and obtain the activity waiver forms.

2. Parent Participation is Voluntary

In this scenario, the parents are welcome to stay and participate, or release their student(s) to the care of The CFL staff and approved volunteers. The ratio of adults to students is in accordance with Christ the Redeemer Catholic Schools’ policy (below). If the parent elects to drop their student(s) off, they must deliver the student(s) to the school staff member at the event to check them in and sign the activity waiver. At the end of the event, the parent must collect the student(s) from the school staff member at the specified time and ensure the staff member knows the parent has arrived to pick up the student(s). Please do not drop your student off at the door or plan to pick them up outside.

3. Parent Participation is Restricted or Not Allowed

In this scenario, the host venue has asked that parents not participate either due to the nature of the event (i.e. swim lessons) or because of limited space. The Centre for Learning@HOME will provide supervision according to the supervision standard set by Christ the Redeemer Catholic Schools. Parents may be able to watch from the sidelines (like in swim lessons) or drop the student(s) off and pick them up at the end of the program. When dropping off your student(s), please deliver the student(s) to the school staff member at the event to check them in and sign the activity waiver. At the end of the event, the parent must collect the student(s) from the school staff member at the specified time and ensure the staff member knows you have arrived to pick up the student(s). Please do not drop your student off at the door or plan to pick them up outside.


If arrangements are made for someone other than the parent/guardian to pick up a student, please notify The CFL staff member, in writing, prior to the start of the event.
