Washington D.C. Trip

  • DC Update: (4/29/20)

    7th grade parents,

    As you are aware, we have been continuing to monitor the different announcements made by Governor DeWine as well as the various health experts in relation to the COVID-19 global pandemic.  In an effort to maintain the safety and security of our students, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Washington DC trip.  Please understand that this decision does not come lightly.  Many have asked about a reschedule to the fall, and unfortunately due to the uncertain nature of everything related to the pandemic, we are not going to be able to do so.

    We have been working diligently with Traveling Classroom throughout this entire process and Mr. Jackson has been extremely helpful in working with us.  Traveling Classrooms will work on providing refunds by the end of May.  The travel agency will mail refunds directly to you.  Due to some costs that are incurred whether or not the trip occurs, the refund amount will be less $50 of your  paid amount (i.e. If you made full payment of $445 you would receive back $395,  if you only paid deposit of $100 you will receive $50 back).  If you have any questions on the process or need further information, please contact Traveling Classrooms by visiting their website: travelingclassrooms.com

    DC Update: (4/3/2020)
    As of right now, we are continuing to look to the experts (CDC, Ohio Deptment of Health, and Stark County Health Department) for guidance with where to go next.  It is a very fluid situation made even more complicated with Virginia, Maryland, and DC issuing stat-at-home orders recently.  As a result, we can't give you definitive answers on when/if the trip will be rescheduled for our students.  At last check, Traveling Classroom is dealing with 52 trips that have been uprooted.  If any family has pressing concerns with regard to a refund, we are advising them to reach out to Traveling Classroom directly.  Their phone number is (330) 323-0401 and their website is  www.travelingclassrooms.com
    Otherwise, please sit tight and be patient until we know that we can make the best decision for our students and staff. Thank you for your patience during this crazy time.  We hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.
