Are field trips drop off?

No, not unless explicitly stated. Parents should plan to attend field trips with their student(s) or to send them with another parent/caregiver. CHEC will have a field trip coordinator attending the field trip to answer parent questions and coordinate with staff at the location, but the coordinator is not responsible for monitoring students.
Do my students need to take classes at CHEC to enroll in field trips?

You do not need to be enrolled in classes at CHEC to take field trips. They are open to everyone. You will need an account on the CHEC website and payment will be managed through that account.

My family can't make the field trip anymore. Can we get a refund?

Sorry, no refunds. This creates a lot of work and we are all volunteers. Someone else can take your place though (and you can offer up your spots on the Cvillechec mobilize group). We would appreciate it if you notify us at if you can't make it or if someone else is taking your place.
I want to enroll my student in a field trip that they aren't the correct age group for. What should I do?

Our age recommendations are generally guidelines for what group the field trip is aimed at. We understand that parents often want to shift siblings for convenience. This is usually fine. Go ahead and enroll and if there is a problem, we'll let you know. Occasionally field trips will have strict age guidelines (when requested by the venue). We will try to note those cases in the field trip description.
There are several programs for different age groups associated with a field trip. I want to enroll my children in different programs, but they are at the same time and I can't chaperone both. How is this handled?

You do not need to register as a chaperone twice. You should only pay one fee. Typically, you would register to accompany your younger child(ren). Upon arrival, make sure the coordinator realizes that you are accompanying your younger student.
Will people be masked/distanced?

We will require everyone to mask indoors. We will not require masks outdoors. Distancing is encouraged, but may not be possible in all locations. Refer to descriptions of individual field trips to determine special requirements.
