Field Trip Application Form


All field trips requiring school bus transportation must be entered into the TripTracker field trip software at least 15 days prior to the trip date.

St. Mary’s County Public Schools offers Trip Tracker, a searchable online database of field trips for each school.


1.) If you need more than one bus for a trip, you must CLONE the trip for every bus you need.For example, if you are taking three buses to the National Zoo on May 3rd, then you will need to enter the first trip and then clone it two more times, so that three identical trips show for that day. Do not use the vehicles field to designate the number of buses you need.

2.) The standard bus carries 48 passengers at two to a seat. If you are not sure how many buses you need please contact us.

3.) If you have already made arrangements with a specific driver, please make sure to indicate that in the “notes” section, along with any other pertinent information.
