    FAQ? 

    When are permission slips due?
    *Permission slips will usually be due the week BEFORE the adventure.

    *No permission slips accepted after the first bell on the due date.

    When is the first meeting?
    *I come in the cafeteria and make Adventure Club announcements frequently. There is NO meeting.

    Can I still join?
    *Yes, you can always join Adventure Club. 
    If you are joining after September, you must see me in room 109 to join.

    Is the Health Form different than the one turned in at the beginning of the year for the school nurse? 
    *YES. Students MUST turn in the completed Health Form that is attached at the bottom of this page.
    This is a different form than the school form. Turn in the Adventure Club Health Form ASAP.
    Do this even if not going on our first Adventure. This is a one-time form, it does not have to be turned in for every trip.

    Can permission slips and/or  the Health Form be emailed to the school?
    No. Your child should drop off a hard copy to the Student Center.
    If you have computer/printer issues, please pick up forms from the Student Center.
    They are available there. Students can also print here at school.

    Do I have to go to on every trip?
    *NO, of course not. 

    How much does it cost?
    *It depends on the Adventure. Most adventures are about $25. 
    Permission slips are due prior to each trip. Payment is not. 
    PAYMENT should be brought in CASH on the day of the trip. Do not pay in advance.
    Many kids bring extra money to events.

    See permission slip for more specific information. 

    Food allergies. What happens if my child can not eat the food provided at the event?
    Does this impact the cost?

    *The cost does remain the same regardless.
    We negotiate package deals that include everything. There is no real way to back out the cost of part of the Adventure.
    When in doubt, send your child with their own snack.
    We will try our best to get them a suitable replacement at the adventure.
    This is not always possible.

    Parent volunteers
    *It is rare that we would ask for parent volunteers. One of the purposes of Adventure Club is for kids to socialize and bond with one another. We have parents tell us their kid doesn't mind if they attend, while the kid is telling us that they do. Even if your kid doesn't mind you there, your kid's friends might. We will ask for parent volunteers when needed.

    Can I drop my child off at the event? Can I pick them up early?
    *Kids that are going with the club need to take the bus to the event with the club. We don't want kids joining in at the event itself.  Kids can get picked up early from the event with prior notification / discussion. 

    What about permission slip due dates?
    *Due dates are not negotiable. The school nurse has to check health forms and permission slips for all attendees. The district administration needs student bus assignments for all field trips. We need time to process all of this info.  

    Do adventures ever get closed or filled to capacity before the permission slip due date?
    *Yes, we close events when full. Avoid this issue by turning in permission slips early/ASAP. Buses have maximum occupancy. If a bus is full, it's full. When this happens, we close the event. This is also not negotiable. Parents dropping off their kid at the event is not a solution to this issue. ONLY kids that go with the club on the bus may attend.

    Where do I get permission slips from?
    *Download them here, off this website. Scroll Down.
    Permission Slips for individual Adventures are posted prior to each trip.
    An infinite campus email will be sent informing you that the permission slip is available.
    As soon as one Adventure ends, the permission for the next Adventure gets posted.
    You should be receiving these regularly at the email address you provided to the school.

    Who is participating in the club this year?
    *A list of Adventure Club members will be posted on the website.
    Check that list to see if your name is on it. There were 165 members last year. About 80 go on each Adventure.
    ALL Adventures are first come, first served. They do close out when we reach our max. 
    Get your permission slip turned in as soon as possible.  When the bus is full, we can't take any more.

    How will I know if I am on the list to attend an event?
    How do I know my permission slip has been received?
    *As permission slips are turned in, the Adventure Club Member List attached below is updated. 
    When you turn in permission slip, it will be marked on the list below. 
    Do not assume you are good to go because you turned in your permission slip.
    Confirm your status on the list at the bottom of this page.

    If there are issues, I highlight your name and you should see me.
    If your name is not on the list at all, you have not turned in the required Health Form.
    Please do not email me to see if your child has turned in the paperwork. Instead, check the members list below.

    What do I do if I am not receiving informational emails or if I need to change email address.
    *Emails are sent through Infinite Campus.

    I do not have the ability to change your email address. Only BRMS office personnel can do that.
    Call the school to address issues with email. 267-1800
    I do have as much info as possible on this site.
    Emails are for reminders and cancellations if needed.

    *All emails are sent to the entire group. The message might not apply to you specifically. These emails are reminders to the entire group.

    What about transportation?
    We use district buses. 

    We departure at 3:30ish for school day Adventures.  

    How and when do students depart? What about transportation?
    Most adventures depart Barker Road at 3:30. Students can participate in other after school activities and then attend Adventure Club.
    Kids can go to chorus, play practice, other club meetings, intramurals, etc. and then join us for Adventure Club. Students can even go home. THEY CAN NOT be at the school unsupervised. See permission slip for more departure directions. Kids not going to a supervised activity will report to the auditorium and stay there until the 3:30 departure.
