In all cases:

  • Call 911 and follow the instructions of local authorities.

Field and Overnight Trips:

  • All teachers must have an emergency cell phone, medical kit, and a list of school emergency phone numbers. If a phone is not available the school will supply a prepaid phone for the trip.
  • The school office will be informed of the cell phone number being used on the field trip
  • Teachers will also take the list of each student’s emergency contact information, the permission to treat form, and the field trip permission form with them on the field trip.
  • If a child has special medical needs, a teacher who is aware of their conditions should consider requiring parents to accompany their child.
  • The teacher will insure that all of the school’s policies regarding field trips, chaperones, drivers. etc., are being adhered to.
  • In the event of a medical emergency, the teacher will accompany the student to the hospital, unless the parent is present. If this is impossible another chaperone should accompany the student.
  • The teacher must immediately notify the Head of School, Business Manager or other MEMT member (in that order) as soon as possible.
  • The HOS will then notify the parents and will decide whether the field trip will proceed and how.
