Frequently Asked Questions
Is there transportation funding?
This year there is no funding for buses. If you are only bringing a few students contact the MAEOE office to see if another school nearby can share a bus with you!
Oh no it is raining the day of the Summit. Will the event be canceled?
The event occurs rain or shine and is outdoors all day. If it is raining please come prepared in rain jackets, rain pants (if you have them), and rain boots. The grass is very soft and wet. The event will only be canceled due to severe weather events that would make it unsafe to be outside.
Can my students go swimming?
No swimming allowed. Students may wade into the Bay up to their knees if the teacher or chaperone allows. There is no place to change clothing as the bathhouses are closed for the day. Port-a-potties are available for all restroom needs during the event.
What is the toilet situation like?
Port-a-potties have been provide for your convenience. They are very clean and contain hand sanitizer. Bathhouses are locked for this event. Two ADA Port-a potties are located close to the basketball court.
What time is my Green School or Green Center ceremony?
Ceremony schedules will not be posted until early May. Independent schools' ceremonies will occur at the same time that the public schools' ceremonies occur.
Can we buy snack/lunch there?
There is no place to buy food or drinks at the park. All participants must provide their own lunches and/or snacks. Picnic spaces include designated pavilions, lawn, and beach. Bring a blanket and have a picnic!
What sort of exhibitors are there?
Many government agencies and non-profit education centers provide hands-on activities, crafts, and games. Some also have demonstrations on green careers.
