Day Program Information for Parents

Preparing Your Student 

Day Program GirlThe most important action parents can take to prepare their children for a program is to pay careful attention to the expected weather conditions and dress their children properly for the day. Students should come prepared to be outdoors including comfortable shoes for hiking and seasonally appropriate clothing. Students also bring bagged lunches to eat on site after the instructional program.

In case of inclement weather of the kind that would make a field trip unsafe or instructionally inoperative may require a school to reschedule or cancel the program. These changes will be initiated by the home school with advice and consultation from the Day Program Coordinator who will attempt to set a new date for the trip. 


Students may attend a program at either the Lathrop E. Smith Environmental Education Center or Kingsley Environmental Center
