A permission slip is a form that an educational institute sends home with its students, to seek approval for minor students to attend field trips and picnics under protection and guidance of the school authorities. The document serves a dual purpose; it informs parents about details of the trip and gets parental consent to safeguard the school's position if any mishap occurs during the trip. Basically, the document ensures that the school is not taking a student away from the school premises against parent's wishes.

Apart from the aforementioned points, a permission slip may offer details such as goal of the trip, fees for the trip, and things that the child should bring along. e.g. packed lunch, containers for collecting samples, stationery, etc. Most schools have a printed format that just needs to be read and signed by parents or guardians. If not, then the above templates are the best way to prepare a permission slip by yourself.

Given below are a couple of templates that will give you a fair idea of what a permission slip should contain.
