Additional Information or Restrictions
Use this to propose an alternate start/end time, ask for a weekend field trip with your preferred start/end time, or share any other pertinent scheduling information.
Field trips for up to 30 students cost $500 with a $20 charge for each additional student up to 35 students maximum. Groups that exceed the maximum should be divided into groups of less than 35 to attend separate field trips on different days.
Please share anything else you would like us to know about your group (i.e. chaperones that are English language learners, relevant allergies, your attention-getter, what you're working on in class that relates to this field trip, etc.)
Many of our grant funders ask us to provide demographic information on the students who attend field trips at our site. Please help us by providing this information for your class!
Instructions: Estimate the percentage of students in your class, to the nearest 5%, of each of the following groups. If you are unsure, write "X".
GRPC requires at least 1 adult chaperone for every 8 students. I will separate field trip attendees into three equal groups with at least one adult chaperone assigned per group before arriving at the field trip site.
Field trips start at 9:30am and end at 11:30am unless prior arrangements have been approved by the GRPC Education Programs Department. I understand paid GRPC staff are scheduled specifically for each field trip and therefore I will not expect any extension of program time should my group arrive early or late.
I will encourage students to use the restroom prior to arrival since bathroom trips during program are disruptive.
Snacks and lunches should not be eaten during the field trip, except for medical reasons, due to the disruption caused to the program. If my group is eating at the park before or after our field trip, I will ensure our trash is picked up and placed in the proper receptacle.
I will instruct all field trip attendees to bring water and be generally prepared to spend at least 2 hours outdoors (i.e. wear weather-appropriate layers, a hat, sunscreen, long pants, closed-toe shoes appropriate for extended walking, etc.)
GRPC is a non-profit organization that relies on community support. GRPC staff or volunteers may take photos, screenshots, audio recordings, and/or video of my group during GRPC programs to use for grant, training, or publicity purposes. If there are individuals in my group who should NOT be photographed or recorded, I will let GRPC staff know when I arrive for our field trip.
If I need to reschedule or cancel my field trip:
I will send a notification to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 days in advance of my trip date. Trips cancelled with 30 days’ notice can be rescheduled at no charge or refunded minus a $25 administrative fee.
Cancellations made with less than 30 days notice are ineligible for refunds and will be charged a $25 administrative fee for rescheduling. Scholarship recipients who fail to give at least 30 days’ notice of a cancellation will lose eligibility for future scholarships.
