The East Lycoming School District is excited to offer many opportunities for its students to participate in field trips throughout the school year. Educational opportunities outside the classroom walls are viewed as a crucial component of a student’s education.
With the safety of students being a paramount concern for any school district, we reserve the right to cancel trips, based on reasonable information that may cause undue harm to students. With every trip there is a certain element of risk. However, no matter what the situation every effort will be made to ensure the safety of our students.
As you review the attached parent permission form, please be aware of all the circumstances related to any scheduled trip. The final decision as to participation of your child in any out-of-school trip is yours. We completely understand and respect the decision of any parent/guardian when it comes to the safety of children. For those students who do not participate in field trips, an appropriate educational activity will be provided by their building principal.
If you should have any questions and/or concerns regarding field trips please contact your building principal.
