First Grade Footnotes

Florence Elementary, Week 29, April 4, 2016

Dear Parents

Our zoo field trip is quickly approaching! If you are planning to chaperone, please complete a background check with the district here. All chaperones are required to clear a district background check! If you would like to chaperone and have not completed paperwork this school year, you may access it on the KellerISD website. Please allow several days for processing.

Chaperones will be responsible for securing their own ticket and transportation. If younger siblings will be accompanying you, we are unable to use you as a chaperone but would love for you to meet us at the zoo for a fun-filled day anyway.
