Field Trips

  • At Prairie Elementary, we feel field trips are a very valuable educational experience.  When a class is scheduled to go on a field trip, you will receive the necessary information and a permission form to sign.  Children will not be allowed to leave school without a signed parent permission form on hand prior to departure.

    When possible students will eat at school either before or after the field trip.  In rare cases, students will have to eat on the field trip, on these cases students will need to bring a lunch or order a sack lunch.  Students will make the request on their field trip permission slip for a sack lunch, even if they receive free/reduced meal benefits, as they will not be automatically included in the count.  

    If you wish to accompany your child on a field trip as a chaperone, you must complete the volunteer application online and pass a background check. Siblings are not allowed to accompany Prairie students on field trips.
