WESTWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Some northern New Jersey students may be out of thousands of dollars and a trip to Europe.
As WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reported Wednesday, 14 students at Westwood Junior/Senior High School were two weeks from a week-long trip to France when the travel agency they booked the trip with shut down.
“It’s very sad. We’re all very sorry. The school district employees set out with the best of intentions as did the parents and the students. We thought this was going to be a great opportunity for all our children,” parent Ann Eichorn told Putney. “They were going to be in another country, which is an opportunity that most of them had never had until now. So, that’s all taken from them and that’s very sad and no amount of insurance is going to give that experience back.”
