All full-time HSTs are required to host a minimum of 2 field trips per year, but we hope you will want to host more. Our field trip team is working hard to book lots of amazing educational field trips for our MVA families!

Families have the option to request a school provided meal for field trips. They must notify the field trip team with their request at least one week prior to the field trip date. In the event that meals are requested for your field trip, you will need to pick those meals up from your park day lead prior to your trip. If meal requests are received, the field trip team will notify you at least 4 days prior to your field trip. MVA Meal Request Form


PRIORITY BOOKING FOR YOUR ENROLLED CHILDREN

New for the 23/24 school year, you can now request priority booking for your enrolled children on field trips you sign up to facilitate! You'll be able to make this request when you sign up to facilitate a trip on SignUp Genius. Please be aware that we can only accommodate priority booking for your enrolled children if you make that request prior to the trip going live for booking to our school.

HSTs, Please familiarize yourself with our Field Trips & Events Site for Families

Field Trips & Events (FTE) Site

Field trips will be available for viewing two months in advance, and open for booking one month in advance. Additionally, booking times will vary depending on when in the month the trip takes place. This will ensure tickets are booked properly and will provide families with the ability to book more field trip opportunities.

In between booking times, please inform families to be sure to log completely out of the Field Trip site. Families will need to log in at or after the booking time, each half hour, in order to be able to book tickets properly.

A "Favorite” feature is now available on the FTE sites for families! Now when families browse upcoming field trips, they can mark their favorites so they can easily find them when they go back later to book! Once a trip has been selected as a "favorite" it will appear in the "Show Favorites" list that can be selected at the top of the Field Trips page!

Teachers and Families should also review the FAQ on the FTE Site.
