The 6th grade Camp Kern trip is quickly approaching, the middle school staff is hard at work with final preparations. The school will be sending home more information regarding the trip, stay tuned. In order for things to go smoothly for drop off and pick up, please consider volunteering and review the parent/guardian tips below:

Action – Volunteers Needed:

Please sign-up (via Sign-Up Genius) to assist with drop-off and pick-up for the Camp Kern field trip.

• Wed 11/8, 8:15 – 8:45 AM – Parent volunteers (6) to assist students with adding color-coded teacher tags to their luggage to assist with ensuring all luggage is delivered to the correct location.

• Fri 11/10, 11:30 – 12:30 PM – Parent volunteers (10) to assist with placing luggage in color-coded teacher locations to assist students and parents to quickly locate their luggage at pick-up.

Parent/Guardian Tips:

Drop Off: On 11/8, the 6th grade students will arrive at 8:25AM.
• Please assist with the drop off process by having all luggage ready to go, pull up in the drop off line, and allow students to exit the car with luggage..
• Please do not park or get out of the car in the drop off line as this will cause a traffic back-up.
• We will have volunteers to assist students with placing their luggage for loading and heading to homeroom.
• We will have 145 kids to unload in 10 minutes, we appreciate all of your help to help this process go smoothly.
Pick Up: On 11/10, the 6th grade students will be ready for pick-up at 12:30PM.

• Parents/Guardians will need to park in the lot or on a side street, and not use the drop off lane because the school buses will be arriving and parking in the drop off lane with students.
• Students will locate their luggage by the area designated (by color) for their homeroom teacher.
• Students should not walk home due to the large amount of items (luggage, camp items) that they will need to bring home.
• Students will be released to parents/guardians at pick-up, there will be no afterschool care for 6th graders due to early dismissal.
Thank you for all of your support and assistance. If you have questions, please feel free to contact your child’s homeroom teacher or Ms. Bolton at boltont@wyomingcityschools.org
