The Board of Education for Coast Mountains School District 82 has cancelled the Mount Elizabeth Middle/Secondary School Out-of-Country Field Trip to Belize planned on March 18 to 25, 2020 organized through EF Educational Tours.

Due to the serious safety concerns relating to the recent health events across the globe surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the decision was made to cancel the out-of-country field trip.

With the Board of Education’s decision to cancel this out-of-country field trip, we understand that the 20 students and staff will be eligible to apply for reimbursement through the insurance global travel protection plan with EF Educational Tours.

A lot of planning has gone into this trip and it is a disappointing outcome for the students, staff and parents who have diligently worked and fundraised towards this enriching educational opportunity.

We appreciate the understanding by our students, staff and parents and their support of this decision.
