Family Education Trips
Complete Pre-Travel FormThere 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.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.
COVID-19 Travel Update
Travel within the U.S.: As a result of the governor’s order in early March of 2021, the quarantine period for individuals engaging in out-of-state travel has been lifted. Individuals traveling outside of the state are encouraged to practice the Big 3 in a disciplined manner. Monitoring for symptoms consistent with COVID-19 is a critical step each morning, regardless of whether or not you have traveled. Students currently in a 10-day period of quarantine following travel, are permitted to return so long as they remain asymptomatic. Families will no longer be asked to complete the post-travel forms. We appreciate your cooperation throughout the year in communicating this information to keep our schools open and students safe.
International Travel: All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board a flight to the United States. In addition to that test, travelers need another negative COVID-19 test 3-5 days after they return and need to quarantine for 7 days even if it's negative to monitor for symptoms. Documentation should be shared with the school nurse regarding your child's negative COVID-19 test. Documents can be scanned and emailed to the nurse.
