Our travel agent, Rita Slane, has continued her contact with Disney, Universal Orlando, and Anderson Coach and Travel.

At this point, all parties have our Orlando trip TENTATIVELY rescheduled for Thursday, September 24 through Monday, September 28. Any travel would have to be approved by our board office.

In the event that we cannot attend on the dates listed, we WILL be able to either reschedule or receive a refund.

Mr. Palmer will inquire about the possibility of including recent graduates on our trip. There are no guarantees that this will be permitted, but at the very least, we do know that anyone unable to travel with us will receive a refund.

Please also note that while UHS does NOT have a home football game that weekend, our travel dates do coincide with WVU Homecoming.

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding, and we will continue to update as regularly as possible.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

Our travel agent has been in contact with Disney, Universal Orlando, and Anderson Coach and Travel.

Our goal is to reschedule our trip for the fall and to refund as much money as possible to anyone unable to travel with us at that time. There are still few answers at this point however, and we would need approval from Monongalia County Schools before confirming any dates.

We will continue to update as regularly as possible.

March 11, 2020


Out of an abundance of caution as the Coronavirus situation unfolds, Monongalia County Schools has suspended all out-of-state travel until further notice. Obviously, this will affect the University High School Band trip to Orlando on March 19.

There are more questions than answers at this time. However, Mr. Palmer is working closely with all parties involved to answer our questions, and to either reschedule the trip or recoup money.

Thank you for your understanding. We will post updates as information becomes available.
