At least two weeks prior to your trip, don't forget to.........
  • Fill out a field trip request form and return it to your school secretary. For billing purposes, please write KDT! on the form.
  • Fill out a bus request form and send it to your school secretary. For billing purposes write KDT! on the form. School secretaries are now ordering buses for elementary field trips. You will not receive confirmation from the Transportation Department. You will only hear from them if they cannot accommodate your request. If you would like to confirm anything with the bus garage, ask your school secretary or you may call the bus garage directly at 274-2128. We recommend putting this number in your cel phone so you can reach the bus garage while you are on a trip if needed.
  • Send home permission slips. The district requires a signed permission form for each field trip a child attends. If a family does not send back the form, phone permission is acceptable. We encourage you to use this permission form pdf and as a word doc that describes KDT! to families and gives us permission to use photos taken on the trip.
  • Order lunches if necessary. Consider peanut allergies in both classes when ordering lunches.
  • Alert the nurse.
  • Alert specialists if you will miss one of their classes.
  • Get Volunteers.

You should be able to find all the forms you need in your main office. If you have any trouble, contact your school KDT! liaison or contact Randi Beckmann.
