As some of you may have seen in the press today, the Wake County School Board announced last night that schools will operate on a two-hour delay schedule on Tuesday November 6th in response to expected high voter turnout for this year’s mid term elections. There are several school campuses that are polling sites, and the system is worried about handling the volume of both school traffic and voting traffic on those campuses.
That has thrown a monkey wrench into our field trip plans, as we were supposed to be going to the NC Museum of Science on November 6th.
As a result, our field trip has been cancelled.
There is simply no way to get our group downtown and through the museum on that kind of schedule.
I am currently working with the Capital Area Visitor Center to reschedule our visit and will keep everyone posted once we nail down a new date.
I appreciate your patience. Obviously, this was unexpected and inconvenient!
