Coronavirus: Some Okanagan school trips continue while others are cancelled

While some Okanagan school trips will not be taking off because of COVID-19, other valley students are still headed overseas on class trips over spring break.

Some 10 school trips from Okanagan school districts have been cancelled to date, but at least three are still clear for take-off.

Okanagan Skaha School District

In the South Okanagan, the Okanagan Skaha School District announced it is cancelling all international travel until the end of April.

That means a planned trip by students to New York during spring break and a Robotics Team trip to Texas will not go ahead.

The district had already canceled a planned trip to Europe earlier this week over COVID-19 concerns. 16 students, from all three of the district’s high schools, had been scheduled to go to France, England and Amsterdam.
