Our walking field trip is rescheduled for this Wednesday, November 1st. Please remember to have your child wear appropriate footwear for the Mill Pond Trail and dress for time outside.
As a reminder, if you would like to chaperone any of our field trips you will need to follow our district policy as outlined below:
Beginning this year, all volunteers must be fingerprinted (this includes field trip volunteers) in addition to watching the Bullying Video on the SAU19 website (under the special projects tab). Additionally, you will need to sign the Verification of Bullying Training Form that is also found on the SAU 19 website. Fingerprinting is available at the SAU office, for a cost of $20.75.
As always, let me know if you have any questions!
