STRATFORD, Conn. -- Parents at Chapel Street Elementary School in Stratford are upset about a lack of communication after a much-anticipated three-day two-night trip to a nature camp for sixth-graders was cut back to just one day with little notice, according to the Stratford Star.

At a packed meeting, parents said the annual trip is a rite of passage as the sixth-grades prepare to move on to middle school, said the Stratford Star.

School officials admitted they were late in informing parents that the trip was changed, said the Star. None of teachers would volunteer to stay overnight because of allegations of an improper relationship between a former tutor and student, added the Stratford Star.

At the end of the meeting, parents and school officials agreed to consider rescheduling the trip, a plan that would need the approval of the Stratford Board of Education, said the Stratford Star.
