Our new permission slip template for field trips allows teachers to customize a letter and permission form to send home with students. It informs parents about the activity and has a cut-away section at the bottom with the emergency contact information and signature that the student will need to return to the teacher.

This field trip permission slip includes an area at the top for you to explain more about the activity to parents and guardians. The two tables in the middle can be used to quickly provide the most important details about the activity like the location, date, time and what to bring.

What makes this template especially useful is the lower portion that can be cut off so that the student can bring back the signature and contact information of the parent or guardian. The parent can keep the upper portion as a reminder about the details of the activity.

We suggest finding a fun image to include as well. The text box in the template explains how to replace the existing image.
