Announcing 2016-2017 Field Trips!

We are now scheduling field trips for the 2016-2017 school year at newhavenreads.youcanbook.me! Before scheduling, please take a minute to read through some of our new policies, copied below. Our field trips program is extremely popular and run by dedicated volunteers, so your cooperation with the policies below will ensure that field trips run smoothly. (Conversely, failure to comply places a burden on our volunteers, and can also mean that you have prevented another class from visiting.) As such, we are very grateful for your cooperation!

Before you book your field trip…

 How do I schedule a trip?
Please visit newhavenreads.youcanbook.me to schedule a trip. Once all available trips are scheduled for the year, New Haven Reads will make wait list sign up available.

How many trips can I schedule for my class?
You can only sign up to visit ONCE per year. While we’d love to see you more than once, our field trips program is incredibly popular, and we want to ensure that as many classes as possible are able to visit.

What grades can book a field trip?
NHR hosts Pre-K through 5th grade. We are not able to provide field trips for middle or high school students, but we invite you to come get a box of books for your students.

Can I schedule field trips for another teacher?
Yes! However, it is essential that you include contact information for both yourself and the teacher.

Can I bring more than one class for a single field trip?
No. One class per time slot, please.

 

After you book your field trip…

Will NHR send me a reminder?
Yes! You will receive the following three confirmation emails.

  • After scheduling your trip, you will receive a notification from youcanbook.me.
  • About a month before your trip, you will receive a reminder from the Book Bank Manager.
  • You will receive one final confirmation email the week of your field trip.

If you do not receive these emails, please check your Spam folder.

What if I need to cancel my field trip?
If you need to cancel, it is essential that you notify NHR at least two weeks ahead of time, so that we are able to schedule someone from the wait list. You may send notification to books@newhavenreads.org.

Can New Haven Reads reschedule my field trip?
If your field trip is cancelled because of a snow day or other inclement weather, we will do our best to accommodate your class. We are not able to reschedule for any other reason.

 

During the field trip…

Can I arrive early or stay later than the scheduled time?
Please be faithful to your scheduled start and departure times. Our field trips are run by dedicated volunteers, most of them retired teachers, who arrive and set up 15 minutes ahead of time. If we let your class in early, it is difficult and sometimes impossible to complete set-up, which in turn makes the field trip difficult to run. Similarly, please make sure your bus will return within 30-45 minutes to ensure that we are respectful of the volunteers’ time.

Where can the school bus park?
Buses may park on Bristol Street, between the corner and the NHR parking lot. Please note that buses which block the parking lot will be asked to move.

Can I request that specific books be available for the field trip?
For classes that have English language learners, students who are reading above or below grade level, studying any specific subject matter, etc, you can send your requests to the Book Bank Manager (victoria@newhavenreads.org) ahead of time and we will do our best to accommodate, dependent upon availability.

Can I request books for my classroom library?
Yes! If you’d like to request extra books, please email books@newhavenreads.org at least a week before your field trip is scheduled.

Any other questions or concerns?
Please email books@newhavenreads.org.
