Safety Patrol Rewards
Six Flags Great Adventure:
the end of the school year, our safeties get to attend a trip to Six
Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ. Students DO PAY for their tickets
unless they have a season pass. We get a discount on admission tickets ($34) so it is affordable to students. If students have a season pass, they
only have to pay a $3 processing fee.
do ask for chaperones to attend the trip. There are usually 3-4 groups
(no rides, small rides and all roller coasters). Once groups are
organized, we DO NOT move students to other groups.
What to bring:
need to bring comfortable clothing and shoes (no flip flops). We will
be walking around the park all day long, and flip flops cannot be worn
on certain rides.
do not eat inside the park, so students MUST bring a bagged lunch (no
glass bottles) and have their names on the bag. Do not send your child
with a park dining pass expecting them to eat at one of the snack places
or restaurants.. If students arrive the morning of the trip without a
lunch, they will be sent to the cafeteria to buy a fun lunch or
breakfast to bring on the trip.
will periodically stop at locations to get drinks. Many students on
the trip buy the refillable drink bottles. A one day refillable bottle
costs around $17 and students get free refills all day long. If your
child has one already purchased for the current season, they can bring
that into the park. It is important to stay hydrated, so please keep in
mind to send your child with some money to purchase drinks. Otherwise,
they will only be able to drink from the water fountains.
- We are not stopping at gift shops, so please don't send in extra money expecting your child is able to purchase items.
your child brings a carrying bag or purse, THEY are responsible for it
during the entire trip. Chaperones will not be carrying students' bags
or drink bottles. The school is not responsible for any items that are
lost or stolen on the trip, so please remember to not send anything that
is valuable (like electronic devices).
sunscreen and bring any medication. If your child is not permitted to
self medicate, the parent/guardian MUST attend the trip. We will be
checking with the school nurse for any student who requires medication.
who claimed their child has a season pass and did not purchase a ticket
must make sure the pass is with the student on the day of the trip. If
a student does not have their season pass the morning of the trip, they
will not be able to attend. We do not have extra admission tickets for
students. We only have enough tickets for students who purchased them
prior to the trip.
are provided safety patrol t-shirts for the trip. We hand out the
shirts the day before the trip. If a student is absent, he/she will
receive their shirt the morning of the trip. Students are reminded that
they represent the school, so they ARE NOT PERMITTED to cut or write on
the shirts on the day of the trip. If a student arrives to school with
their shirts cut or written on, they WILL NOT attend the trip.
trip is an all day event. Buses arrive at the school around 8:45 am
and we do not leave the park until 5 pm. We arrive at the Horbelt
School between 6-6:30 pm. Parents/Guardians must pick up their child by
