School district will not sanction student trips to Honduras and Chicago
(Strongsville) – Due to the teachers’ strike, travel plans for two Strongsville High School student trips are no longer sponsored or sanctioned by Strongsville City Schools, according to Strongsville City Schools Superintendent John Krupinski.
“Because trip chaperones and advisers are primarily teachers’ union or Strongsville Educations Association (SEA) members, the high school student trips intended for March of this year are no longer sanctioned, sponsored or supported by Strongsville City Schools,” explained Krupinski. “We value the opportunity to support our students with enriching travel programs and we are extremely disappointed that the Board of Education must decline its sponsorship for the community service trip to Honduras, as well as the orchestral performance opportunity in Chicago.”
“Families that decide to arrange their own itineraries to either of these locations should continue in keeping with guidelines for excused student absences, however Strongsville City Schools can no longer assume any responsibility and liability associated with these trips,” added Krupinski.
The two canceled high school student travel programs are:
Strongsville High School Community Service trip to Flor Azul, Honduras from March 22 to 29.
Strongsville High School String and Freshman Orchestras trip to Chicago, IL to participate in a clinic performance at Vandercook College of Music from March 23 to 26.
