*Field Trip Information:

-We will go unless it is storming at 8:30.
-Students should wear long pants and tennis shoes regardless of the temperature because we will be climbing in the woods.
-Students may wear play clothes.
-We will be using bug spray because there will likely be mosquitoes and perhaps some ticks in the woods.
-If your child has allergies and needs a special kind of bug spray, please send it with a label for use.
-I recommend hats as well for protection from bugs and the sun.
-Please send a change of shoes (not clothes) in case the farm/woods are muddy.
-Students need a snack, a water bottle, a lunch.
-Please label lunches, snacks and water bottles with your child’s name.
