Warrior Band Trip Chaperone Requirements/Policy
Considering serving as a trip chaperone? Here are a few things that the Lakeside Lutheran High School Music Parents Organization (MPO) requires of all trip chaperones.
A trip chaperone needs to:
  • have a child in the band (If a parent is not able to chaperone, an adult close relative, i.e. grandparent, may fill in. This would need to be approved by the MPO Executive Board.)
  • be a positive, Christian role model for our teens
  • conduct him/herself in a Christian manner
  • complete and clear a criminal background check
  • serve as a parade chaperone for at least one of the local parades
  • volunteer for at least one shift during Band Camp (overnight is recommended but not required if work dictates this as not possible)
  • be able to get off of work for the entirety of the band trip (Calgary 2020 is June 28-July 11)
  • to be present the night before trip departure to help pack truck
  • be present at pre-trip chaperone meetings as scheduled
  • be chosen by Mr. Pufahl and other members of the MPO Executive Board
  • be willing to serve in multiple capacities on the trip (uniforms, kitchen help, packing truck, etc.)
  • have a physical completed and WI DOT form filled out and both on file at Lakeside (if driving the van with students)
