Field Trips

Field Trips & Other Student Activities

Our insurance provides broad coverage that protects the District in most school-sponsored activities. However, there are important exclusions to consider when planning any activity whether or not the District incurs a cost for the activity.  Especially those that fall into a high risk area such as renting inflatable amusement rides or taking students on a field trip which includes some outdoor activities.

Please allow at least six (6) weeks before your event for gathering the required information and to allow the Purchasing Department to assist with assessing the potential risk associated with the activity, process the purchase order, contract, and vendor's insurance documents.

  • Amusement Activities / Fun Centers
  • Boat Trips (other than WA State Ferries)

 Amusement Activities

The Amusement Activities Checklist will help you determine which activities and inflatables are approved for Northshore as well as conditions that must be met prior to reserving inflatables or participating in some activities. Using the form as your guide for choosing appropriate activities will speed up the purchasing process and cut down on any delays that may occur. Feel free to contact Christine Cash (x7630) if you would like assistance with using the form.
 

The Amusement Activities Checklist must be completed, signed by your administrator and attached electronically to your requisition before a purchase order and contract can be sent to a vendor. The .pdf form can be completed electronically and printed for the required signature.

Boat Trips

If you are planning on taking students on boats, other than Washington State Ferries, a Watercraft Form is required and must be completed, approved by Christine Cash and then attached electronically to your requisition before a purchase order and/or contract can be sent to a vendor. The .pdf form must be completed electronically and printed for the required signature.
