New plans for class trip
CANFIELD -- Eighth-graders here won't be taking a school-sponsored trip to Washington, D.C., this year. Instead, the pupils will be taking a trip around Ohio.
Dante Zambrini, director of administrative services in the schools, said the trip to Washington was canceled in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. The trip had been an annual three-day event for eighth-graders.
Zambrini said school officials canceled the trip out of concern for the safety of pupils. He also said school officials were worried that some of the attractions in Washington would be closed during the trip.
Details of the Ohio trip have not been finalized, Zambrini said.
