We'll always hand out hard copies of our forms to your student, but you can also download any TEAM form from the list above or they are also in the appropriate folder in the IntraTEAM Course on Schoology. Please take a moment to find the correct one(s), with the correct year--they are updated before each field trip. Packs are assembled for each field trip and include the Parent Permission and Student Behavior contract for overnight trips.
If your child takes medication, either prescription or over the counter, that needs to be administered during the day or at night while on a field trip, please return the District medication form. Please start filling this out early to allow time to get your family doctor's signature.

The "A" in TEAM stands for Altruism/Activism. To match this value, TEAM has a Service Learning component that is implemented through an assignment in Biology Classes. Here is a link to the Service Learning assignment, which connects students to community organizations such as Grassroots Ecology and Save the Bay. Also check out the Paly Community Service Page for more information.
