Field Trip Guidelines

Dear Parents,

We've gotten off to a great start at PCMS. It is our hope that this will be a wonderful school year for you and your child(ren). 

With this in mind, attending field trips is an exciting part of the middle school experience.  We do want to stress; however, that attending a school sponsored fieldtrip is a privilege.  There are a few important reminders to consider throughout the year.

  1. Academics come first!  If your child is not passing his/her classes, then they are not eligible to attend a field trip.
  2. Attendance is mandatory to be eligible for a field trip.
    • First Semester Eligibility
    • To attend a field trip during the 1st semester, the following criteria must be met:
      • a student may not have missed more than 4 days of school
      • tardies and check-outs from school must be limited to no more than a total of 5 for the 1st semester
        • Example: a student may be tardy 2 days and check-out 3 days
    • Second Semester Eligibility
    • To attend a field trip the 2nd semester, the following criteria must be met:
      • a student may not have missed more than 8 days of school for the year
      • tardies and check-outs from school must be limited to no more than 5 for the 2nd semester
        • Example: a student may be tardy 2 days and check-outs 3 days
  3. Additional requirements may be determined by team, grade level, or organization.
  4. Extenuating individual circumstances will be reviewed by PCMS administrators.

Please keep this information in mind.

We appreciate your help in promoting your child's good attendance at PCMS.

Sincerely,

Perry Tison, Principal
