Last Updated: 8/10/2019 12:22 PM

Select a school form below and submit with the requisite information.

The principal or delegated approving authority reserves the right to deny any trip request based on the student’s academic standing, attendance record, and/or disciplinary status during the current school year, or for insufficient justification. Absences resulting from unapproved trips will be classified as unlawful/unexcused.

This form should be submitted two (2) weeks prior to the date of departure. It is understood by each student and parent that class work missed during the period of absence will be made up. Requests should be sent to the Building Principal, who will be responsible for making the decision.

The completed request form(s) will be emailed back to you after they are processed. Contact the individual school's main office if you have any questions.
