This is the image for the news article titled 8th Grade Washington, D.C. Trip PostponedThe ILMS 8th Grade 2020 trip to Washington, D.C. is now postponed until next summer. In May of 2021, the current 8th graders (next year's freshmen) and next year's 8th graders will go on the trip together. The price will remain the same. If you've already paid for your student's trip, the cost will not increase.  
At time time it is not clear when the nation's capitol will be open for visitors. In addition, we do not want to conflict with family vacation plans by moving the trip further into the summer. Finally, we do not want to move the trip to the fall because many of these students will be involved with high school academic, athletic and music events that they will not want to miss. 

The plan is to have the two classes on separate busses with separate itineraries, so it still feels more like a class trip.
