Field Trip Information
To reserve a bus...Please see your School Secretary. Transportation will no longer take reservations from teachers or anyone other than the Secretary. Thank you.
Field Trips provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities. Popular field trip sites include zoos, nature centers, community agencies such as fire stations and hospitals, government agencies, local businesses, amusement parks, science museums, and factories. Not only do field trips provide alternative educational opportunities they also provide students the opportunity to take a break from their normal routine and experience more hands on learning.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I NOTIFY TRANSPORTATION ABOUT OUR FIELD TRIP
Schedule your field trip far in advance will ensure that the date and time you want is available.

Reserving does not guarantee a bus. Transportation will need:
- Field trip application with funding source and Principal's or Director's signature.
