First Day on the Water

4 - 6:30 @ Sandy Run

The first day on the water is an FCPS student holiday (President’s Day).  Since your students will not be at school that day, please arrange for their transportation to/from Sandy Run.  Our world-famous carpool service will start on Tuesday Feb 19th providing rower transportation to Sandy Run -- see below (Carpool section).

Going to the River soon - Need Carpool Drivers!

All parents are welcome to sign-up to drive and earn two service hours per carpool...but first we need your paperwork!

Drivers must have an insurance/driver's license form on file. 

Driver's License & Vehicle Insurance Form Link

Each driver needs this form completed and signed by Mr. Eline.  Even if you think you can't drive, there may be a day you might be able to earn those two service hours, so it is highly recommended that each driver turns in a form.   

Mr. Eline checks EVERY line before he signs it. If you don't fill it out completely, it will not be signed, and you will need to resubmit it, and it could delay your carpool driving.

The second form that must be completed is the Field Trip Permission Form (see link below).  Your rower can only use carpool if they have this form completed, so it is highly recommended that each rower turns one in (even if they currently drive--their car may be in the shop one day and they need a ride).  

Field Trip Permission Form Link  

Carpool Sign Ups: 

Rowers must be signed-up for rides No later than 5PM on the prior Sunday. Rowers who haven't signed up by the deadline will be required to make other travel arrangements to the river. 

The pick-up location will be at Robinson by Door #6 which is located just past the erg shed and beyond the preschool playground. Drivers and rowers should arrive by 3:30PM. 

The last driver will depart at 3:45PM SHARP!  

Please Note -- Parents are responsible for the trip home from Sandy Run.

Coming soon -- look for an email with Rower and Driver signups.

Questions?  Email Elaine Sullivan or Valerie Dunn @ or look for us at the next general meeting.
