 Dear Parents,

On Thursday, July 8, 1999, your child will attend a field trip to the Hackensack Meadowland Environmental Center in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The trip is planned as part of the activities with the Summer Space Technology Computer Camp sponsored by the Center for Information Management Integration and Connectivity, Rutgers University. The campers will conduct a study of the marshland birds, plants, and fish that live there during the year.

Campers will complete a report on their study using computer technology to find additional information about the salt marsh. Parents are encouraged to discuss the field trip experience with their child.

Final projects will be posted on the CIMIC Rutgers homepage. Electronic photos may be posted to the web as well. There may be media coverage by local newspapers of the field trip. In this case parental permission is required before any pictures of student activity are taken. Below is a Request for Permission for your child to participate in activities that may be posted to the website or appear in local newspaper. If you do not wish your child to appear in any media coverage or posted to webpage, please indicate so on the permission slip.

If there are any questions regarding the field trip or permission to photograph, please contact me at the number above. Thank you for your cooperation.

Very truly yours,

Charlette Jennings

Project Manager
