: I’ve got a trip to a festival in a few weeks
: and had a few kids fail this six weeks. I’ve
: warned them and their parents several times
: that they must be eligible to go with us.
: This is a TEA rule as we are going to a
: competition. This means they have lost their
: entire trip payment ($350) and I have one
: very upset parent. He is emailing everyone
: under the sun and is making a big stink
: about the fact that kids still go on field
: trips when they are failing (recently to the
: food bank for example). He is demanding that
: his kid be allowed to travel with the group
: and just not participate in the performance.
: My handbook and many emails clearly say
: otherwise but he is not backing down. Can
: you give me some other ways to explain this
: to him, or is he right? Has anyone been
: able to take failures along if they didn’t
: participate? IE: still going to six flags,
: staying in the hotel, etc. Thanks.
