The Deputy Mayor of Washington DC personally reached out to the school principal this week to stress the U-S Capitol is safe and there are no credible threats against it.

Kevin Donahue encouraged the district to reconsider and join the 20 million visitors to DC each year.

Last week, administrators sent a letter to parents saying the trip is too risky and cited recent mass shootings and terror attacks.

The North Ridgeville Schools did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
