From the Seattle Times:
The Kent School Board has decided to halt all international field trips, worried that stricter border enforcement could prevent Kent students who are in the United States illegally from returning to the country.
The decision, announced at what was described as an emotional board meeting Wednesday night, resulted in the immediate cancellation of two Kentlake High School trips scheduled for this school year: an education exchange to Osaka, Japan, and a band trip to Victoria, B.C., that has been a school tradition for 18 years.
From the Kent Reporter:
Citing concerns about immigration and border control, the Kent School Board on Wednesday night unanimously agreed to stop all student international travel for the foreseeable future, including the Kentlake High music program’s upcoming trip to Victoria, British Columbia.
The Victoria Day Parade goes May 22nd this year.
