MENTOR, Ohio - After Discovery Tours canceled a D.C. trip for 500 Mentor school students, leaving their parents out of hundreds of dollars—$455 to be exact— the superintendent of the Mentor Public School District announced parents would be reimbursed.
In a letter to parents sent out Tuesday night, Interim Superintendent Bill Porter said the Mentor Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution to authorize the school district to reimburse the parents and guardians for any unrecovered funds paid to Discovery Tours.
Parents will need to go through the treasurer's office to obtain a reimbursement. The procedure to do so is being developed and will be communicated further when its finalized, the letter states.
Discovery Tours told Mentor Public Schools it had to cancel the trip because the company was unable to receive final confirmation for the hotel rooms. The school district said it contacted the hotel itself to get more information.
