The Ephrata Middle School eighth grade Boston Club trip will still take place in early May, though safety will be addressed at an upcoming meeting.

"Student safety is the highest priority," said Stephanie Gingrich, the school’s director of community relations.

The regularly scheduled parent meeting takes place April 18 at 7 p.m. at the middle school auditorium.

"Organizers will review with parents the safety information taught to the students and will encourage parents again to review the information with their students," said Gingrich. "At any time throughout the trip, trip organizers have the authority to modify the itinerary or terminate the trip if they believe student safety is being compromised," she continued.

Michael Miller, eighth grade language arts and student council advisor at the school, coordinates the Boston trip each year. Throughout the year, participating students raise funds for the weekend educational trip that focuses on language arts education.

Students will travel to Boston and surrounding cities May 3-6.
