It appears that a field trip this weekend for jazz vocal at Garfield (just over to Vashon), that had been approved by the principal and the district Risk Manager, got pulled by Michael Tolley and Sarah Pritchett (executive director for the region) at the last minute. (The vocal teacher did get the paperwork in at the last minute because of the new policies but was told it was approved.)
There was no explanation given and, despite Principal Howard's best efforts to contact anyone at JSCEE yesterday afternoon, he couldn't get ahold of anyone.
There were to be 70 kids on this trip. Some of the kids think it might be retaliation for the rally on Wednesday.
If the district has a problem with a field trip, they need to make that clear BEFORE planning is done, chaperones gathered and money paid.
