Family Events & Fieldtrips
Family adventures have always been an important part of Canyon Grove’s program. As we have gathered information about the needs of our families and also the legal requirements that we must meet as a school, we will be offering more Family Events and fewer Field Trips than in past years. What is the difference between a Family Event and a Field Trip, you ask? Great question!
A field trip is held during school hours and a Family Event is held after school hours.
To meet the requirements of a Family Event and also to include both parents in the fun, we will offer most Family Events after school hours. As many as possible will be after school on Thursdays, but some venues will only have openings on other days or times of the week. No matter what time or what day, we will be sure to wrap up in time to get your kids settled for the night! We appreciate your flexibility and feedback as we continue to learn what will provide the most benefit for our families.
To make it feasible for us to offer these Family Events, many of the same rules apply such as no refunds, being on time, etc. To be certain you understand the requirements, please read carefully through the FAQs below and always read the details included with each event’s sign-ups. We are so excited to be offering more Family Events this next year… let the family adventures begin!
What is the difference between a field trip and an event? A field trip is held during school hours and event is outside of school hours.
Will there be in-person field trips this year? We will have family field trips as soon as we can. However, with COVID, we are waiting until restrictions are lifted around Utah before we organize these opportunities again. Thank you for your patience; we miss them as well!
How are these paid for? In order to get a discount events are paid in a lump sum by the school. When you sign up for each individual event or fieldtrip that you would like to attend you pay the fee. Fee waivers are not available for events because they are held outside of school hours. A fee waiver is available for qualifying students for field trips. The fee waiver will pay for the student and a parent to attend the field trip. Make sure we have a signed copy of your Declaration of Income Form.
Can I get a refund? We reserve and pay for Events/field trips before the activity. No refunds can be given; however, you may sell your spot to another family and are welcome to post it on the school’s Facebook page to find an interested CGA family.
Who can go on the field trips and events? Field trips and Events are for immediate families of Canyon Grove students only. Field trips are ONLY for student and one parent. Events include two parents or legal guardians, enrolled student and siblings. Because we invite the whole family we need a waiver for liability. Please print and sign and hand into the office or take a pic and email it to your teacher or ES.
What if I am running late? NO late arrivals will be admitted, no exceptions, and you will lose any fees paid. We are required to check in and pay as a group. The locations will not allow any arrivals once the payment has been made. If you arrive late, you will be asked to pay the normal price.
How do we get to/from the field trips and events? We do not provide transportation, you will need to provide that on your own.
