					2nd Grade Field Trip
March 10, 2011

Dear Parents:

On April 11th your child’s class will be going on a field trip to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science
Center. We are allowing five (5) chaperones per class to join us as we explore hands-on exhibits, review
weather and observe animals in their habitats. We regret that brothers and sisters will not be
permitted to attend.

We will leave school at 9 a.m. and return at approximately 1:30 p.m. We will use school buses and request
that parents ride the bus if seats are available. Some parents may have to drive their own vehicles if
bus seats are not available. The cost of the trip is $12.00 per student and $14.00 per adult. Checks
should be made payable to GBP. Since we must reserve our tickets in advance, the price of the tickets is
non-refundable. There will be no tickets sold at the door.

Chesapeake Public Schools has implemented citywide guidelines wherein chaperones MUST attend an
orientation at the school outlining their responsibilities and expectations as a chaperone prior to any
field trip. Please arrive at the school at 8:00 am on April 11th for orientation.

Please pack your child a completely disposable lunch (no lunch boxes) for the field trip or fill out the
cafeteria order form below. If you order lunch, you may pay by a separate check, cash, or have your
child use a prepaid lunch ticket. We will enjoy lunch at the Virginia Aquarium Pavillion. To ensure the
children’s continual safety, all children must return to school first and then the student can be signed

We’re looking forward to this exciting and educational trip! We will need signed permission slips and
money returned no later than Friday, March 25th.
                                              Please return the bottom portion to school.
