Chaperone Expectations



We would like to take this opportunity to thank all chaperones for volunteering to make this experience both a fun and educational experience for all!  Please ensure all chaperones and leaders review the following information to make this a pleasant and safe field trip for all attendees.

For your convenience, this important information is also available as a GoogleDoc.


Designated chaperones and leaders are expected to:


    • Stay with their designated groups at all times and help the students engage in the field trip in a positive manner.


    • Abide by the rules given during the field trip introduction, including only using cell phones to take photos.


    • Assist teachers and Guadalupe Guides during activities and stations by helping manage student’s behavior, ensuring all rules are followed, and letting students answer questions asked by Guadalupe Guides to enrich the students’ experience.


    • Refrain from smoking any substances while in the park in accordance with San Jose city ordinances.


    • Escort students to the restroom when needed.


    • Assist students with placing their belongings and lunches at the location designated by Guadalupe Guides.

    • Be prepared and able to spend 2 hours outdoors. We recommend bringing water and wearing layers for the weather, sunscreen, a hat, long pants, and closed-toe shoes suitable for walking outside.


    • Keep anything found in Guadalupe River Park & Gardens exactly where it is and make sure students do the same. This includes, but is not limited to, plants, herbs, rocks, and sticks.


Thanks for doing your part to make sure students have a fulfilling and meaningful experience!
