Parents are warned of potential death for World of Nations field trip
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --- One Duval County parent is urging others to read the fine print when it comes to their child's field trip permission slips. This comes after her daughter brought home a permission slip to the World of Nations Celebration.
It reads, "Your child may be seriously injured or killed by participating in this activity because there are certain dangers inherent in the activity which cannot be avoided or eliminated."
Maria Pulliam was shocked when her 12-year-old daughter brought home the slip from LaVilla School of the arts. She said, "It scares me! I've been [to World of Nations] before. I've been with my family and my children and I didn't see anything that would cause serious injury or death!"
First Coast News found there was a mix-up with permission slips that circulated through Duval County Schools. Jax Happenings is organizing the event. They say the permission slips are meant for adults who wish to engage in physical activities, i.e. parachuting. The county is doing their best to re-circulate the proper permission slips to parents.
