DARIEN - A group of students from Middlesex Middle School in Darien is back home after an extra long class trip to Paris.

They spent four extra days in the city after their flight was canceled due to the volcanic ash cloud covering parts of Europe.

A trip chaperone, Donna Lindsay, says the group made the most of their extra time.

A separate group of students from Fairfield Ludlowe High School who were stuck in Italy also returned home yesterday.
