Wake County Reinstates Out-Of-State Field Trips

Posted November 30, 2001 2:21 a.m. EST

— A ban on school travel is over in Wake County.

After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Wake County school superintendent Bill McNeal suspended out-of-state field trips until Dec. 1. McNeal was concerned about student and staff safety.

The ban will be lifted, starting on Saturday. It will be good news for Broughton High School's band, which travels often and the Leesville High band, which plans to attend an important music clinic in Chicago.
