Field Trips

Field Trips

The Volunteer Application MUST BE COMPLETED BY ALL VOLUNTEERS. Only approved volunteers who have completed SafeSchools training for the current school year and independent contractors who have submitted a background check to the 4J school district may be on campus or attend a school function without a staff escort. Check with the secretary to see if your volunteers are approved.

Note: Volunteer applications take two weeks to process. Recruit your volunteers well in advance of your trip to ensure adequate time for processing.

4J Field Trip Resources and Guidelines

Students under 18 must obtain permission from a parent or guardian any time an excursion takes students off of school property.

Overnight field trip requests must be submitted 30-days before the trip date. This provides both the administrator and HR time to review the trip and follow up on any needs or required changes. If requests are submitted without the required 30-days notice, HR will deny the trip request.
