Darien students stranded in Paris by ash cloud

A group of students from Middlesex Middle School won't be back at school today with the rest of their classmates after their spring break trip

DARIEN - A group of students from Middlesex Middle School won't be back at school today with the rest of their classmates after their spring break trip to Paris was extended due to the volcanic ash cloud over Europe.

The students were scheduled to return home from their trip yesterday, however, the cloud from the volcano eruption in Iceland caused their flight to be canceled.

The group is hoping to learn today when it will be able to get a flight home.

Meanwhile, a group of students from Greenwich High School is stuck in Greece while a Fairfield Ludlowe student is trapped in Italy.
