How to create a permission slip.

Permission slips are a VERY important "must" in Public Achievement. there are certain ways that things should be done, so always remember to follow these criteria, and help remind others to do so as well.

What do you need on a permission slip?
You need the time, date, and destination of the event/field trip. Tell who will be providing transportion. (Are you renting a bus, taking your car or getting parents to drive? ) Include when students will leave and return, if extra transportation needs to be arranged for sports, etc. What will you be doing on this field trip? Include the names and phone numbers of the adults and other contact people, along with Jill Hurd's name and number at school (387-5077). Create a place for the sttuent's name, and a place for a parent/guardian signature and date. You can add a deadline when slips are due back as well. Permission splis that are sent home with cover letters are a good idea.

Chaperone Policy
In PA we require at least two adult chaperones for any group of students. If the group of students is composed of both boys and girls you need chaperones of each gender. For large groups our rule of thumb is one chaperone for every 10-12 students.
