Field Trips

July 01, 2020

PDS schedules a number of field trips throughout the year designed to enrich traditional classroom instruction by exposing our boys to creative and practical applications of curricular concepts in the field. Typically, this experiential learning for our boys takes place off campus and includes a combination of faculty and parent chaperones.

Parents should be notified of the complete arrangements at least two weeks in advance. If the boys are traveling in cars, the Head of Early Childhood or the Principal of the Elementary Division must have a list of each driver and the names of those boys in his/her car before leaving school.

According to state law, until a boy is nine years old (unless he is already 4' 9" or taller), he must ride in a booster seat when being transported in any vehicle. Please consult the following website for any further questions:
