Field trips are an important element of the School’s program. They allow for direct learning (as opposed to viewing a picture in a book), they appeal to multiple learning modalities and learning strengths, and they often cover numerous curricular outcomes from multiple subjects.
Student’s conduct when off-campus should reflect a concern for safety, consideration for docents, and respect for the reputation of the school. Staff and supervisor-given instructions must be followed.
For safety, liability and insurance reasons, pupils must be under the direct supervision of a teacher or other named supervisor. If a secondary student wishes to go home directly after an event that ends at 3:00 or thereafter, prior approval by parents must be communicated to the front office.
