Pre-Trip Activities:

Student Funding:

Foothill Horizons receives funds each year from the Education Foundation of Stanislaus County (an organization separate from the Stanislaus County Office of Education). These funds are available to subsidize outdoor school tuition for students in financial need (Stanislaus County public schools only).
Principals of schools attending Foothill Horizons are provided with information on how to apply for student funding at the beginning of each school year. If you know of students who will require funding, speak with your principal as soon as possible.


Dress Code:

A packing list with dress code information is included in the Parent Handbook. Please remind your students that your school’s dress code must still be followed at Foothill Horizons. Also remind them of the following:
Socks and closed-toe shoes are the only footwear allowed at Foothill Horizons
(except inside the dorms). 
Hats may not be worn indoors and may only be worn with the bill facing forward.
Clothing with inappropriate messages may not be worn. 
Students should not bring new clothes to outdoor school because they will be getting wet and dirty.
