We are so excited to offer a new round of field trips. For the week of September 3-10, please sign up for one field trip so all families have access. After that you may sign up for as many as you would like. Please pay attention to age restrictions. Please watch dates closely and make note of the field trips that require prepayment for adult chaperones. Please pay 2 weeks early in the Arete office with exact cash, check made to PRSD, or at Mealtime https://www.mymealtime.com/AppsAdmin/SignIn.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fAppsAdmin($20 minimum). We pre-pay for all Arete students so if you need to cancel with less than a week's notice, you will need to reimburse Arete for the field trip fee for your child. All field trips will start at the field trip location with check in 15 minutes before the start time. Families are responsible for making transportation arrangements for their children. Families typically join the field trip. Please email at [email protected] if you need to drop off and pick up your child.
