Tripped up: “The perils of proofreading”

From a recent letter sent home from school involving a class trip coming up in later part of April:

“Hello 7th grade Families and students,

“The time has come to provide some details for the 7th grade trip to Atlanta! The trip dovetails with our … curriculum, and we are excited about what lies ahead for our students.”

Several paragraphs later:

“Although there is no real need for devices, students may bring cellphones or one electronic device on the trip (sic). We want students to fully engage with activities each day, but we realize that there will be many fabulous photo opportunities in our nation’s capital.”


Now, I want to know what curriculum are they teaching?

Did they fight the Civil War again, and I missed it?
