Given current travel advice, specifically surrounding cruise ship travel, as well as the daily changes in public health information being released, the Westwind Board of Trustees and Administration have made the unanimous decision to cancel the 2020 Raymond Band Cruise trip scheduled between April 11-17, 2020.
This decision was based on current advice, surrounding cruise ship travel, received from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), Global Affairs Canada, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Education, and Alberta School Boards Insurance Exchange (ASBIE).
RHS and RJHS school administration are currently in discussion with the travel company to inquire about the possibility of reimbursement. The portion of funds that have not already been paid to the travel company will be returned to families as soon as possible.
