My district requires permission slips each time we go on a field trip or each
time we take students off of school property for an activity. I used to
one permission slip for the year. Because of the added hassle, I only took
students on one major trip this year. I even had to have permission slips
to take students to pick up their Scholastic Art Awards and to clean up the
Rosedale neighborhood. We are required to turn in the permission slips to
the office and carry a duplicate set with us in case something happens.
It's getting too complicated to bother, anymore.
