On the field trip, each student will be with a group of two or more friends of their choice, or they will be with a group that has a staff member, depending on parent/guardian requests. Students must stay with their group. Wandering off or ditching anyone in your group is not allowed and if caught doing so, said student will need to be with a staff member on future trips. See check-ins below for more info.

Check-ins

Summer
Check-in times are an important part of the added responsibility Wave students enjoy. Since students are not required to be with staff at all times, we use check-ins to make sure students are safe and accounted for. Before we leave and split off on the trip, staff will let students know what time and where they need to check-in. It is advised that students have a watch or phone to keep track of time. Students MUST be on time to check-in’s. Students who check-in late may need to be with a staff member for the remainder of the day and on future trips.

Additionally, students who do not need to be with staff members on the field trip must always be in a group of two or more. Groups must be approved by a staff member. Wandering off or ditching group members will not be tolerated. Consequences include being with a staff member during field trips, a phone call home, and in some cases, suspension from the program.

Spending Money

Summer
Spending money at the Wave is optional. Students who want to bring extra spending money may do so, but it is their responsibility to keep track of it.

What should I bring to the Wave?

Summer
The weekly email will list what items are needed each day. Please call (952) 217-1261 if not receiving these emails.

Students should bring a bag lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Students should plan on bringing a swimsuit and towel for all water trips, and additional spending money if desired.

What should I NOT bring to the Wave?

Students are responsible for any items they bring to the Wave. That said, students may want to leave valuable items at home (iPads, headphones, cell phones, etc.). Please note, staff sometimes use cell phones to find students during field trips in extenuating circumstances, although, cell phones are not required. We assume no responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged items.

When will I get my Valleyfair Pass?

Summer only
Students will receive their pass the first time they attend Valleyfair with the Wave. We will attend Valleyfair once a week for the first three weeks in hopes to give students ample opportunities to receive it . Students will need to know their address and phone number for the required season pass form in order to receive the pass. Passes will not be issued without a visit to Valleyfair with the Wave. Season passes are not guaranteed after 7/12/18. If your student already has a season pass, please have them bring it each Valleyfair day, and notify a Wave staff member.

Can my student sign in and out of the Wave independently?

Only students given parent permission via Eleyo may sign themselves in and out of the Wave.

What if my student participates in summer school, band, or swim lessons?

Summer only
We try our best to accommodate lessons and other activities with field trip departure times, but sometimes we are unable to due to field trip distance. If your student has a conflicting lesson or activity, you will have to decide as a family whether to come to the Wave or the activity that day. We apologize for any inconveniences.
