How are field trips handled?
The impact of any critical situation on field trips, both system-wide and at individual schools, will depend on the specifics of the situation. If the situation warrants, all field trips will be canceled. All school buses are equipped with radio communications with the transportation office. If a field trip is under way and must be recalled, buses would be directed to return to the school or a designated safe area. Any such decision will be announced using the FCPS emergency messaging system.
