Field Trips & Class Trips
Classes are taken off-campus to places of interest that relate to their class work. All children are expected to take part in these trips. A permission slip containing the details of any trip is sent home for parents to read and sign.
Individual automobiles may be used to transport students on school-related activities at the owner’s risk. In such cases the following is understood and practiced:
- Christ the King expects that no more passengers will be carried in the vehicle than the number of available working seat belts.
- All passengers should have their own seat belt and booster seat (if necessary) and use it while the vehicle is being operated.
- The driver of the vehicle must have auto insurance for their vehicle. A copy of a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance must be on file in the CTK school office.
- Christ the King does not insure the non-school owned vehicles. (In other words, should an accident occur, the driver’s insurance would be used to cover any loss.)
- Christ the King Lutheran School does have insurance to protect the school against lawsuits brought against it should an accident occur and the school is found negligent.
- Younger siblings are discouraged from attending field trip events.
- Drivers are strongly discouraged from stopping during field trip events for treats or drinks for the students.
6th Grade Outdoor Education: Part of the sixth grade curriculum experience is a two-day Outdoor Education experience in October at the 4H Center in Ferndale, Arkansas. All students are expected to attend Outdoor Education. The cost of the trip is approximately $140.00 and includes all food, lodging, transportation, and camp instructors. The payment may be divided in half over the months of September and October. A parent meeting is held in September. Families needing financial assistance should contact the principal.
Nashville or Washington D. C. : In April, 7th and 8th graders alternate years and travel to Nashville, TN or Washington D.C. as a part of their Tennessee History and U.S. History curriculum experience. All students are expected to attend. The Nashville trip is three-days and two-nights and costs around $400.00. The Washington D.C. trip is four-days, traveling by air. The approximate cost is $1200.00. The Friday hot dog lunches and other fund raising activities bring the cost of the trips down to a more reasonable amount - approximately $200.00 for Nashville and $750.00 for Washington D.C.
