Field Trip to Cranbrook Institute of Science – We have an exciting trip planned to the museum on April 27th. We will be riding in a school bus. We will have a fun live presentation about Force and Motion, seeing Native American exhibits and seeing the special traveling exhibit called Space: A Journey To Our Future. Chaperones are needed and I will be sending out a permission slip closer to the trip. Make sure you have your volunteer forms completed in the office if you wish to attend. It takes time to do the background checks to get approved to go.

Cranbrook COVID Safety Protocols are as follows:

  • Face coverings are recommended for all guests aged three and older for the duration of their visit.
  • We encourage children under age three, who are not wearing a face covering, remain in a stroller or carrier for the duration of their visit.
  • We encourage guests to be respectful of the other people around them and be mindful of each other’s space.
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available at the museum entrance and high-contact areas.
