German exchange trip stays in June
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Monroe High School's German exchange trip will remain scheduled for June after the school board earlier this month denied a request to move the 2016 biennial trip to spring break. Monroe High School German teacher Kristin Bansley told the board the two-week trip may have to be canceled this year if it couldn't be changed to March because of scheduling conflicts with the staff who would be traveling with students to Germany. Bansley said 16 students applied for the trip, but one of them will graduate by the end of this year and thus wouldn't be able to go if the trip is in June.
