    Staff and Student Visitor Expectations

    • "Staff" refers to any personnel brought by a visiting school site.
    • Staff and students are expected to adhere to the professional and behavioral expectations set by their school sites.
    • Staff are to remain with students.
    • If there is a student who would benefit from constant adult proximity, bring a chaperone or a staff member to remain with them.
    • Students will conduct themselves in a polite and positive way to engage in learning. Visiting staff will monitor and assist students in maintaining behavior expectations.

    Field Trip Expectations

    • 3 classes of the same grade per trip is the preference.
    • If your group is larger than 3 classes, attendees will be split into 3 equal groups. Teachers will select who's class will be split prior to attending.
