Field Trip Guidelines

N.H.E.A. Field Trip and Event Guidelines for Families with Young Children

Statement of Faith: Participants must agree and follow the statement of faith per the NHEA registration.

GOAL: Our goal is to lift up our Lord Jesus Christ and bring Him glory and honor in all that we do. We are representatives of Jesus, NHEA, and Home Education wherever we go. With this as our focus, we consider it necessary to conduct our behavior and teach our children to conduct their behavior in a cooperative and acceptable manner. We desire an excellent experience for our children, families and community and for others to welcome us back, impacted by our love. To promote these personal virtues and foster a healthy educational environment, Northshore HEA holds each student to the following expectations of personal conduct:

    and keep hands, eyes and feet from distractions.

    immediately for as long as necessary. If you witness any unruly behavior in our NHEA children,

    please gently correct and notify the parent immediately.
