Head’s Up:


  • On Friday, September 22, we are going to IFly (Union City) for a physics themed study trip . Study trip forms went home 2 weeks ago (also attached). This form, plus the $45 is due by this Friday, Sept. 8th (no late forms will be accepted).  We still need drivers for this trip!  Because of the distance, and the capacity limit at the business, we are limited on how many chaperones we can bring, so you must be able to take a minimum of 4 students.  The trip will be from 8:45~5pm.  Drivers must also have their Proof of Insurance (Declarations Page) showing  $100,000/$300,000 liability coverage into the office asap (see attached example) to drive.  If you can drive, please let us know ASAP, and how many students you can take. At this point, we do not have enough drivers.
