Permission Slip


A permission slip is a formal document typically used by schools or organizations to get a parent or guardian's authorization for a minor to participate in an activity.  This is most common for things like field trips, but permission slips can be used for other activities as well.

Here's what a permission slip typically includes:

  • Student Information:  This will include the student's name, grade level (if applicable), and maybe their ID number.

  • Activity Details: This will explain what the permission is for.  This could be a field trip, a special event after school, or even permission to use the internet at school. There will likely be details about the date, time, location, and duration of the activity.

  • Emergency Contact Information: This will include phone numbers for the parents/guardians in case something happens during the activity.

  • Permission and Signature: There will be a section for the parent or guardian to sign and date, giving their permission for the child to participate. There may also be a space for them to add any questions or concerns.

Here are some additional things to know about permission slips:

  • They are often required by law in order for a school or organization to take a minor on a trip or allow them to participate in certain activities.

  • The specific information on a permission slip will vary depending on the school or organization and the activity.

  • You can usually find permission slips on the school or organization's website or they may be sent home with students in advance.
