To ensure that Woodward students are safe while moving to and from school-related activities:
Students who travel to school-related activities in school vehicles must also return with the group/team unless:
- Before traveling, the student presents the driver and/or faculty member/coach responsible for transporting the students with written authorization* from the parent permitting the student to leave the activity with another specified adult; OR
- At the event, the parent meets directly with the driver and/or faculty member/coach responsible for transporting the students and provides oral authorization for the student to leave the activity with the parent or other specified adult. Telephone calls are insufficient verification of parental authority.
Students may drive themselves to and/or from school-related activities as long as:
- The faculty supervisor/coach/employee does not require the team/club/group to travel together AND
- The faculty supervisor/coach/bus driver receives prior written authorization* from the student’s parent for the student to drive to and/or from the activity.
Faculty members / coaches / employees will not transport students in their personal vehicles.
