Field Trip Information

Dear Preschool Families,

On Thursday we will go on a field trip to Parlee Farm in Tyngsboro. As of today it appears as though the weather is going to be partly cloudy and the temperature is due to be in the low 60’s. If this is the case we will participate in the field trip as scheduled. Please use the following guideline to prepare for the trip:

All children are to bring a snack and a drink. Please place this in a bag and label it. We will have limited space and we will not to be able to accommodate lots of lunch boxes.

Dress your child appropriately for the weather. It is going to be cool so dress your child in layers. It is supposed to rain all day on Wednesday so the farm will be muddy. Please make sure your child has on appropriate shoes.

Have your child at school promptly at 8:30. The plan is to be on the buses and heading towards the farm by 8:45.

We will arrive back at the preschool at 11:30. All children will be brought back into their classroom and then dismissed by teachers. This can be a very confusing time and we understand that you are excited to see your child but we want to ensure everyone is safe and with the proper parent. Please be patient with us.

Remember if your child is transported to and from school by bus there is NO transportation the day of the field trip. You will be responsible for dropping your child off at school and picking them up promptly at 11:30.

The following is the rain policy from the farm:

Parlee Farms will make a decision no later than 7am on the day of the trip to cancel and reschedule. We

review multiple weather sources and if it appears that there will be rain here between 9-1, we will cancel.

This is an outdoor trip and we do not have anywhere indoors for large numbers of people to wait out a storm.

We will inform you Thursday morning if the field trip will be postponed. Please check the preschool blog that morning to see if the farm cancels our trip. The preschool blog is: http://burlingtonintegratedpreschool.blogspot.com.

We are excited about our trip and looking forward to a fun day.
