How To Schedule a Field Trip (DCS Teachers)
The general schedule is as follows: Field trips 9:00-11:00, High School Field Studies 1:30-3:30
Due to limited staff, teachers can only schedule one field trip per year. Field Trips may be scheduled for half day (9:00-11:00) or whole day (9:00-1:00) by special request only.
Field Trip Confirmation
WEEC staff members will notify you ASAP by email and written notice of the date you are scheduled to visit, and will make the necessary bus arrangements. You may reconfirm your field trip date by checking the WEEC Calendar.
Safety and Liability
- Please review the WEEC Safety Plan and Seating Charts prior to your visit. It is the teacher’s responsibility to assign each student a number before they can enter the classroom.
- Please bring the seating chart you received and the two signed release forms per child to WEEC the day of the field trip.
- If you have students who need special accommodations, please notify us at least one day prior to your visit so that we can make appropriate preparations. Please bring any pertinent medical information.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, only 24 students are allowed per visit (1st semester). No chaperones or other outside visitors are allowed at this time.
Each student should have a name tag with their assigned number printed on it.
Please remind your class not to touch or tap on the aquariums or chew gum or candy. Before you leave the center we ask that your students help us put up any equipment we might use, and that you inspect the bathrooms to ensure that there are no problems!
