 8th Grade Washington DC trip postponed

March 12, 2020

Su: Middle School Trip

On Wednesday evening, Washington, D. C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a state of emergency for the city, due to the growing number of health cases related to the coronavirus.  With this in mind, the 8th grade trip scheduled to depart this evening, Thursday, March 12, 2020, has been postponed indefinitely.

This decision has been made with the safety and health of your child, our children, in our mind and our hearts.  There is no greater gift on this earth than our children and we will never knowingly place this “gift” at risk.

With the postponement, we will continue to monitor the situation currently occurring in our country over the coming days and weeks.  Efforts will be made to identify a timeframe around which the trip may be rescheduled, however, with all of the unknowns that exist today in our country and world there is no guarantee this can be accomplished.

If a decision is made to permanently cancel the trip every effort will be made to recoup the financial commitments, wherever possible, our families made to provide their child this opportunity.

I am deeply sorry that this decision has become necessary and please know that it was made with much consideration towards ensuring the health and safety of the children.  I want to acknowledge Mr. Corey Smaltz for his tireless commitment to serve our children and school – community.  He put in countless hours in preparing for a memorable experience for the children.

I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause for many and ask for your understanding and patience.  

The CCSC leadership team will continue to work to keep you informed as we move forward in the coming days and weeks.  

Thank you.
