School district cancels travel

Spring Break for the Washoe County School District is scheduled for March 14-28, a time when a lot of high school athletic teams had trips planned to compete in California. But the school district announced earlier this week that it was canceling all out-of-state athletic trips and district-sponsored out-of-state and international trips for conferences and academic events due to fears surrounding the coronavirus.

On its website, the WCSD placed a message saying, “We have made the difficult decision to cancel all out-of-state and all international district-sponsored student and staff travel including conferences, athletics, and academic related activities until further notice. Please know that the decision did not come lightly. Currently, in-state and in-district events will continue as scheduled. We will be monitoring the situation closely and informing you on any developments.”
