EDMONTON — Another Alberta school board has cancelled international student field trips over concerns about recent terror attacks.
The Black Gold Regional Division says that after conferring with parents all international student field trips are cancelled until Aug. 31, 2016.
The board of education says while some students and parents will be disappointed, the safety of students and staff cannot be put at risk.
The Black Gold division south of Edmonton has about 10,500 students enrolled in 30 schools.
On Monday, the Edmonton and Calgary Catholic school districts cancelled all their international trips for the rest of the school year over safety concerns.
The Edmonton and Calgary public boards have put such trips on hold and are expected to make decisions on whether to cancel them before the end of the month.
