Almost every school takes its students on field trips. These field trips can vary from one another as there are different subjects being taught to them. Teachers conduct trips related to the subject or topic the students are currently being taught, so the activities can be different. The students could be going on a museum trip, nature trail, scout trip, aquatic animals' trip, bird watching trip, or any other science trip. Well, no matter what activities are included in their field trips, one thing is for sure, teachers have to take permission from each students' parents beforehand.

Having said that, a field trip permission slip has to be sent with every student which he/she has to get signed by their parent or legal guardian. This way, when the school takes them on a field trip, the parents can't take an objection and/or put the school under any liabilities. Taking care of one student can be tough, but when you have a busload of kids, then you've got to be very careful. Keeping that in mind, we have put this article together which has few different samples (templates) on how a permission slip can look like. So read the article carefully and take your pick.

Sample Permission Slips

For any student, field trips provide an important 'hands on' learning experience of the educational process. But before a teacher can reveal students to a world of possibilities and new learning experiences, every parent or legal guardian has to send a written consent for the trip in question. If you are a teacher and are searching for samples slips for a field trip, you can go through them and pick the template you like.
