Kempton New Church School


School Trips:

Teachers are encouraged to make field trips to reinforce classroom studies and inspire student interest. Permission slips, seat belts for all travelers and chaperones are required for all trips. Permission forms can be downloaded in the “Downloads” section

Family Trips when School is in Session:

Sometimes children miss several days of school to go on family trips. Parents must evaluate the usefulness of such trips relative to the challenges of their child(ren) missing school and the extra demands it puts on them and the teachers.

If you are planning to remove your child(ren) from school for travel, here are some reminders of what will make it easier for your child(ren) and KNCS:

  • First, notify the Assistant Principal (610–756–6140, ext. 205) as soon as you know of an expected absence.
  • Contact each of your child(ren)’s teachers to find out what he or she will miss and how to make it up.
  • Allocate some extra time when you return to help your child(ren) with learning new material. Expect your child(ren) to spend additional time either after school or on homework when they return. With enough warning, homework can sometimes be assigned and completed in advance.
  • Course credit may be affected by absence in the high school grades.
