Family Education Trips
See new requirements below for families upon return from travel.
New this year: Families will now have to complete the pre-travel and post-travel forms anytime they travel outside of Pennsylvania even when it is on a weekend or day off from school.There is a direct correlation between consistent school attendance and academic success. Families are encouraged to plan trips around the approved school calendar. The district discourages trips during the first two weeks of school, the last two weeks of school, and during any state assessment testing windows. Family educational trips/tours that are not approved will count as unexcused absences. Requests for family educational trips/tours should be accompanied by the Student Application for Family Educational Tour or Trip Form which is to be completed by the parent/guardian and submitted to the attendance/main office no later than two weeks before the scheduled trip. Family educational tours/trips, including college visits, will count toward the student's 10 permissible parental excused absences.New this year: Families will now have to complete the pre-travel and post-travel forms anytime they travel outside of Pennsylvania even when it is on a weekend or day off from school.Administrative discretion should be used when approving trips for students based on educational value and timing. Consideration shall be given to the length of the tour or trip, the number of requests made during the school year, attendance/academic reports, and whether the educational tour or trip is likely to advance the educational growth of the student. Administrative discretion should be used on a case-by-case basis.
To better protect our school community and to keep us learning safely and healthy together, families should complete the following steps after receiving an approved travel form and returning home from their trip:
STEP 1: Families should complete this post form and keep child(ren) home upon return from travel.
STEP 2: The district/building team will review the form together and use the Low/High-Risk Travel Guidance to
determine the need to quarantine together based on the CDC and PA Department of Health Travel websites.
STEP 3: The school nurse will contact the family and share the team's recommendation for the return to school date
(either permitted immediately to return or to self-quarantine for 14 days).
Again, this is to ensure our school community is able to keep
on learning safely and healthy together!
