Field Trips Are On The Horizon

With our 2017-2018 year underway, field trips will soon be on everyone's mind.  And for parents, grandparents, or other guardians who may be interested in chaperoning a trip, there are 3 critical tasks that must be completed before consideration.  Those who are interested in chaperoning a trip must complete and submit the forms listed below to the office at least 2 weeks in advance. 

  1. Criminal History Clearance (Act 34)
  2. Child Abuse Clearance (Act 151) 
  3. Wilson School District Volunteer Acknowledgement


These forms and instructions for completion are located on the CT website > Administration > Clearances.  If your clearances are not on file with our HR Department, you will be ineligible to chaperone and another parent or guardian will be chosen.  Please check with Mrs. Bortz in the CT Office to confirm your eligibility.
