Information for Parents about Lagoon Day

Mapleton Mustangs

LAGOON DAY will be Thursday, May 24, 2012. Students who have maintained eligibility in citizenship and attendance, have completed all enrichment sessions, and paid all fines are invited to attend this activity. School will be held for those students who are not eligible to attend and for those students who do not sign up to go to Lagoon.

Park entrance passes will be available at LAGOON for $27.50.  Students will pay for this pass when they arrive at LAGOON—not at the school.  Students will be responsible for their own lunch.  A non-refundable bus fare of $16.00 will be charged to each student riding the bus to Lagoon. Students MUST bring their completed permission slip and their $16.00 payment for the bus fare to the school financial office by 2:00pm on Friday, May 18th. 

On May 24th, we will be loading the buses in front of the school at 7:30 am and departing promptly at 8:00 am. Except for students that will be attending school this day, no students will be permitted to enter the building.  Students will need to come prepared to go directly to their assigned buses.  Faculty and staff will be assigned to each bus to supervise both ways.   The buses will begin loading to return from Lagoon at 3:00 pm and will be departing promptly at 3:15 pm.  Parents, please be aware that Lagoon closes at 4:00 pm this day so having your student stay later to be picked up by you won’t be an option.  If a student rides the bus from MJHS to Lagoon, they are expected to return back to MJHS on their assigned bus.  Any student who is not on their assigned bus by 3:15 pm will be left at Lagoon and will need to be picked up by parents.  We will arrive back at Mapleton Jr. between 4:30 and 5:00 pm.  Since the school will not be open when we return, and the regular school bus service will not be taking the students home, students and parents should make proper arrangements beforehand for rides.

Students may dress in casual clothes as long as they are modest and comply with the school dress code. NO tank tops, spaghetti straps, short shorts, or clothing depicting drugs, alcohol, tobacco or inappropriate words or pictures will be allowed. This policy will be enforced as the buses are loaded.  Please do not get left behind because you are improperly dressed. 

Any illegal activities, inappropriate conduct, insubordinate behavior etc. will be dealt with by Lagoon authorities. Students involved in any of the above will be held at Lagoon until picked up by parents.

We cannot permit a student to go on this trip unless the permission slip below has been signed and returned with the $16.00 non-refundable bus fare. If finances are a problem, please contact the school administration. We would like to make arrangements so everyone eligible can go.
