Markoff's Haunted Forest
in Dickerson, MD

We will leave campus at 6:00 PM and return at 10:00 PM

Registration will open below on September 26 at 9 am and close on September 30.

The cost for the trip is $60/ student which includes the bus and entrance to both exhibits - the town and the haunted trail. (If parents need help affording this trip, they should contact Ms. Favret directly.)  Marketing for this trip suggests that it is very scary.  The actors working here will not touch visitors to the forest, but they are paid to scare them.  Parents and students should take this into consideration as they are deciding if this would be a fun trip. 

A permission slip and the MHF waiver will be sent home for parent signatures the week before the trip.

What is Cardinals on the Move?
Cardinals on the Move is a series of voluntary afternoon, evening, and weekend trips.  These trips are recreational and cultural outings designed to give our students healthy opportunities to socialize and take advantage of the area that we live in.

Who is involved in Cardinals on the Move?
Only LFS middle school students can participate in these trips.  The school arranges these trips and staff and parents chaperone these outings.  We ask that parents pay the costs associated with these trips; and we work to keep the costs low with grants, donations, and group discounts.

Why are we doing this?
These trips will give us the opportunity to strengthen our community and to enjoy each other in a different way than we do in the classroom.  We are excited about getting off our screens, hanging out with some new friends, and exploring our city together.

How does it work? 
We intend to plan 3 to 5 Cardinals on the Move trips per year.  Students may choose to go on one trip or all of the trips.  Students sign up for each trip separately. The space for some of these trips will be limited. We will communicate when the link will “go live” and the first families to sign up will be included in the trip.  The school will arrange for buses. Once we know how many students are participating, Ms. Favret will arrange for chaperones. At school, participating students will be given a Ground Rules Agreement and a permission slip to read, sign, and return. 

Where will we go?
Our plans are to try to take advantage of the wonderful area we live in. We intend to go to sports events, theater events, museums, seasonal activities, etc.  Not every trip will appeal to every student, but we will try to include a fun trip for everyone over the course of the year.
