We will go on multiple field trips this year. Some of those trips include curriculum trips to Lankenau Hospital's Education Center as well as trips to Strawberry Farms, the Highland Park Firehouse, the Upper Darby Police Station and the Philadelphia Zoo. We will need chaperones for the Philadelphia Zoo trip. If you would like to chaperone the zoo trip you will need your state clearances as well as Upper Darby School District's Volunteer Application Clearance.
Please visit the district's webpage for links to the state clearance sites and further information.
