SCPS Cancels out-of-State Trips in Response to COVID-19 Concerns

Westover, MD, March 10, 2020 – As a precautionary measure, in response to Governor Hogan’s recent suspension of out-of-state travel for state employees, Somerset County Public Schools has announced the cancellation of all out-of-state field trips for students as well as out-of-state travel for staff until the threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission in our region subsides. This decision will be reevaluated at the end of March 2020. School administration and staff will be in contact with families to determine whether the trips will be rescheduled for a later date. Families should contact their school with field trip related questions.
