Field Trips

  • Field trips are of educational or cultural value and are directly related to the curriculum. We rely on parent drivers to enable us to provide these enriching experiences. Parents volunteering to drive on field trips are required by California State Law to have a chest X-ray or TB skin test verification on file in the school office, as well as Safe Environment and Livescan clearance. A copy of the parent’s driver’s license and proof of insurance must also be on file in the school office. Drivers must have a minimum of $100,000.00/$300,000.00 in automobile liability insurance coverage on the automobile to be used. Volunteer drivers must be at least 25 years old and chaperones must be 21 years old. The classroom teacher must approve all adults on field trips. All requirements need to be fulfilled one week prior to the field trip. Otherwise, the trip could be cancelled. See Expectations for Chaperones in the back of the Handbook.
