Government Shutdown Forces Itinerary Changes for Upper Arlington Students Visiting D.C.
UPPER ARLINGTON (Tara Morgan) -- Some students are experiencing real life civics lessons while visiting Washington, D.C. during a government shutdown.
The 27 students from St. Agatha in Upper Arlington left Tuesday morning for D.C.
They've had to make some big adjustments to their itinerary.
"We did have to give up the Capitol building visit, we did have to give up the Smithsonian," said Prodigy Student Travel owner Kerry Wimsatt.
Wimsatt says these trips are planned months in advance and students hold fundraisers to attend.
"They have that Capitol reservation for Friday morning and so in lieu of that we're going to give them a tour of the Naval Academy in Annapolis," said Wimsatt.
The tour director who is with the students in D.C. says the students are doing well and there's been no complaints.
They return to central Ohio Friday.
