Field Trip Information
Field studies require a lot of time and preparation from the students, director and parents to make the trips educational, fun and safe for everyone. Especially at SOA, parents are needed to organize, coordinate and facilitate the field trips for the students; without parent help, there will be no field trips. To attend orchestra field trips, students must have their orchestra fees paid; they must have a C or higher in orchestra, and be passing their other classes. Students must also have a clean behavioral record; students who have had within the past year (or are scheduled to have) an expulsion hearing with the school board will not be allowed to attend over night field trips even if they were not expelled. Students with less than satisfactory grades or behavior in any class will be restricted from all orchestra field trips.
