Dear Parent (s),
The time is almost here for the annual sixth grade trip to Nature's Classroom in Silver Bay, NY. The dates of the trip will be Tuesday, May 11 through Friday, May 14.
There are a few last minute details that you need to be aware of prior to our departure. All students are to arrive at Lisha Kill by 8:30 AM.
Due to the amount of luggage that each student will have, it is necessary for you to provide transportation to school
for your child. Upon arrival, all students are to take their gear to the designated
location that will be given in school on Monday depending upon the weather forecast.
Finally, each student should report to his or her homeroom.
We will be returning to Lisha Kill on Friday, May 14 at approximately 2:00 PM. We urge
you to be punctual to avoid traffic congestion during the regular 2:56 PM dismissal time. Upon our return, students are then
expected to help in unloading the luggage from the bus. Please be at school to
pick your child up. If this presents some difficulty, please plan to make arrangements
for your child to leave with another parent, a friend or a relative. So that
your child's teacher is aware in either case, please complete the bottom tear-off and return it to your the homeroom teacher. No student will be allowed to walk home that day! For your child's safety, we ask that you please have your child meet and then introduce any person other
than yourself to his/her teacher prior to leaving Lisha Kill.
Your child should have received a list of necessary items to bring to Nature's Classroom. Please take note of the items that students are NOT allowed to bring: hair dryers, radios, walkmans, I-Pods, hatchets, knives, money or food.
The students will not be allowed to use the telephones and we ask that you refrain from calling unless it is an emergency. If you need to call in case of such emergency, please dial 543-6399. If we have a problem (medical or discipline), we will contact you at home or work.
We strongly urge you to speak to your child about behavior and responsibility. Any reported room damage will be billed directly to the parents of those students assigned to that room.
We know how difficult it will be to spend four days away from your child! We urge you to mail him/her a letter to at least two days prior to our departure. Mail is delivered during meal times and nothing is better than getting a letter from home! Please use the following address when mailing letters or postcard:
Bay, New York 12874
Finally, if you have not yet returned the following forms to school by mid-March, please do so
ASAP. They are required in order to your child to attend the trip.
· Medication Administration Form
· Student Registration
· Home/health Information Questionnaire
Any medications must be turned over to the classroom teacher prior to our departure. Please have all medications in the original package, with dosage directions, placed in a plastic bag
that is marked with your child's name and teacher's name.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping to make this learning experience a successful
