Washington D.C. Field Trip Scheduled for 26-29 March 2020 Postponed (Cancelled)

I have been receiving updates on our scheduled visits to the Pentagon, Capitol, and African American Museum . As of this afternoon we were notified that the Capitol building has cancelled all tours. I was also notified today that all Pentagon tours are cancelled until further noticed due to the Coronavirus.

We are postponing the JROTC field trip to Washington D.C. This is due to the changes (cancellations) ocurring in the DC area, our concern with the spread of COVID-19 and the continuous changes occurring daily that is affecting people, events, and travels.

Our goal is to reschedule the D.C. trip sometime during the 1st Semester of SY 20-21. United Airlines tickets are valid (good) until February 2021, but will not reimburse any funds. We regret this inconvenience as we are looking at the health and safety of all involved.

For more information call or email the undersigned at (727) 246-3071 or wplacere@pasco.k12.fl.us
