Parents ask SD 67 to look again at trip policy

By December 17, 2015News

A recent decision to suspend overseas trips for School District 76 students, has some parents asking the board to reconsider.  At this weeks meeting, trustees heard from some parents of students scheduled to go to England and Ireland on a musical theatre trip.  While parents praised the board for keeping students safety in mind in light of increased terror threats, they also were concerned they may not get all of their deposits back.  Trustees said that because of insurance contracts further discussion on the matter would be held during an in-camera meeting.  No word on any resolution has been released
