Here is some information about student travel. If your student would like to leave the district without their host family they require a travel request form to be filled out and approved a minimum 5 days prior to the anticipated travel. Students leaving the district with their host parents for four (4) or more nights must submit a Student Travel Request form for approval. Students leaving the district without their host parents for any length of time even for the afternoon must submit a student Travel Request form for approval. I hope the following information will help with your students trip planning.

 

*The Campbell River School District extends from the Oyster River to Sayward and includes Mt Washington.
