School District 11 in Colorado Springs has established a set of safety regulations for field trips and off-campus activities. These procedures are designed to ensure the safety of students and staff while they are away from the school premises. Field trips are defined as “any academic, educational, performance, or other trip approved by the District”. All prescribed burns must be reviewed and approved by a fire officer from the Colorado Springs Fire Marshal's Division before they can be conducted in the city.
The Fire Marshal also has the authority to restrict or prohibit burning in Colorado Springs. The use of fireworks with a wick or that require a flame to ignite is strictly prohibited in Colorado Springs. It is important to adhere to these safety regulations when planning field trips and off-campus activities in the city. In addition to the regulations set by the Fire Marshal, it is important for school staff to be aware of any additional safety measures that may be necessary for their particular field trip or off-campus activity. For example, if students are going on a field trip to a museum, it is important to ensure that they are aware of any rules or regulations that may be specific to that museum. It is also important to make sure that all students have appropriate clothing and supplies for the trip. It is also important for school staff to be aware of any potential hazards that may be present on the field trip or off-campus activity.
For example, if students are going on a field trip to a park, it is important to make sure that they are aware of any potential dangers such as wild animals or hazardous terrain. It is also important to make sure that all students have appropriate clothing and supplies for the trip. Finally, it is important for school staff to ensure that all students are supervised at all times during the field trip or off-campus activity. This includes making sure that all students are accounted for at all times and that no student is left behind or left unsupervised. By following these safety regulations, school staff can ensure that their field trips and off-campus activities are safe and enjoyable for all involved.
