    Field Trips and Chaperones:

    Northside Christian School believes that field trips provide a valuable education experience for students and because student safety is our priority, we are now requiring all volunteers/chaperones to have a current background check waiver on file. If you, or a family member, desire to help in the classroom or attend a field trip you are required to complete the waiver. 
     
    In order to enforce this policy we will be asking all parents/family members to stop by the Office before leaving for the field trip and/or going to the classroom. In the office, we will verify the receipt of your waiver and you will be given a badge that will notify the teacher that you are permitted to attend the field trip and/or help in the classroom. Unfortunately, you will not be permitted to attend the field trip or help in the classroom without the badge. Please do not put the teacher in the position to have to turn you away. Simply stop by the office and we will get you all set up.

    We know that without the help of volunteer chaperones like yourself, many field trips would not be possible.  We thank you for giving your time and support to these important activities and trust that you know we are taking these extra precautions with the safety of all our students in mind.

    Please complete the forms below and return them to your school office. If you have any questions , please contact the Director of Human Resources, Heather Brown.
