School district cancels trips to Europe after terror attacks

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – A Michigan school district has canceled two spring break trips to Europe following the terrorist attacks in Brussels.

Our media partners at MLive say Friday that Ann Arbor Public Schools officials have determined that a trip by Huron High School students to Italy and one by Pioneer High School students to Spain pose possible risks.

The academic trips were planned for April.

Parents were sent letters Thursday about the cancellations. Some tell the newspaper that they are unable to get refunds from the company that booked the trips.

The district told parents it would work with travel sponsors to possibly reschedule the trips when there is less risk to students.

Attackers on Tuesday killed 31 people and wounded 270 in bombings at a Brussels airport and subway.
