PRE-APPROVED EDUCATIONAL TRIPS: Parents must complete an Educational Opportunity Trip Request Form available in the office at least 5 days prior to the trip with details explaining how the trip will be educational. Forbush Elementary allows one educational trip per year for a maximum of 5 days excused. Teachers and parents will work together to get missed assignments. Teachers will provide as many assignments as possible before the student leaves for the trip, however some assignments may have to be assigned the day the student returns from the trip. Each student will have 3 days from the day they return to school to submit the missed assignments. Educational trips will not be approved for students with 9 or more absences or after the fact.
