Parent Chaperone Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in assisting with our upcoming field trip as a parent chaperone. We look forward to having you with us on the trip. Please read the linked information and guidelines.

Parent Chaperone Information

While on the field trip, we expect the children to follow the expectations set forth by the classroom teacher. As a parent chaperone we ask you to:

  • Follow the teacher's expectations for the children.
  • Know which children are in your group (maintain a list).
  • You may either ride the bus or provide your own transportation.
  • Make arrangements for younger children. Siblings will not be allowed to attend if you are a parent chaperone.
  • Understand that all children will ride the school bus to and from the field trip.
  • Do not make any purchases for the students.
  • Do not remove your child from their assigned group.

When children do not make appropriate choices:

  • Redirect the child in a positive manner
  • Ask the teacher for assistance.
  • Understand there may be instances when a child may need to be removed for a group by the teacher, if inappropriate choices are being made.

While attending a field trip, it is important to remember to take a step back from being "Mom or Dad." Your goal is to make sure that the children are well supervised and enjoy the trip. We appreciate your support and help. It is important that we know exactly how many parents will be in attendance on the field trip. If for some reason you are unable to attend after volunteering, please call the school office as soon as possible. (397-4000).
