This form package is completely editable and includes the following:
Parent Information and Field Trip Permission Slip
Bus Attendance Form
Student Payment Tracker
The form is an editable powerpoint you can change and print out!
I know before I made this form I had to type up a new one for each field trip I took. Then I got smart and made a template! On the top half of the template, fill in all the field trip details. Check the appropriate boxes for lunch requirements. (If you edit the form electronically, you may need to move the checkboxes.) On the bottom half, you can fill in the permission slip due date, trip location, and date/time, and let the parent fill out the rest of it!
I like to keep the returned forms in a large mailing envelope with my Field Trip Tracker Form and Field Trip Attendance Sheet. Each time a student hands in a Permission Slip and the money, I mark the slip “PAID”, place the slip in the envelope, and give the student a receipt for the money. I also use my Field Trip Tracker Form to check off who has paid and who has turned in a slip and I copy the emergency information and health concerns too for super fast reference on the day of the trip.
Here’s a dirty little secret: I actually left a student once. He was a senior on a honors science fair trip. I called all the names and students said “HERE!” for each name. We discovered he was missing after 5 minutes and went back and got him. I learned my lesson: always count the students after you have read all the names and heard “HERE” and make sure you see the face of every student.
Using my bus attendance form, you definitely won’t make my mistake and you won’t lose a student, even temporarily.
