Family Field Trips

RAS and WWVA have postponed Field Trips sponsored by the schools until further notice, but we acknowledge that off campus adventures are a major part of a student's educational experience.

Once each quarter, students and their families may choose from a provided list of valuable educational/outdoor adventure/community service options to participate in with their families on a Sunday of their choice. These options will be age appropriate and we will be certain that there are equitable options for online field trips or community service projects that families could do from home if they do not have the means or ability to participate outside of the home.
