Field Trips at Central High School
State law requires that all people having close contact with students in schools must have verification of having passed a TB test. Please register the results of your TB test in the district office when making your fingerprint appointment. Without this, you will not be allowed to provide parent volunteer service in the classroom. Field trips are planned by teachers and designed to enrich the curriculum. A note and permission slip will be sent to you in advance of any field trip and will include cost, place, departure time and dress. The permission slip must be signed and returned to your child’s teacher in order for the student to participate in the field trip.
Parents are frequently asked to chaperone field trips, and teachers rely on these parents to provide supervision for a group of students. While field trips are always fun for the students, they are intended to be extensions of the classroom curriculum and are learning activities. This is the parents’ opportunity to participate with his/her child in an educational activity and to assist the classroom teacher. Unless it is specifically a family activity, we request that parents not bring other siblings along on fieldtrips. Take this opportunity to give special attention to your child and play a crucial role in making this an important learning activity for the children in the class. The teacher is depending upon your undivided attention.
If you have any question about the requirements to become a field trip chaperone please feel free to contact us at (408) 201-6300.
