supposely Henrico Country Schools (in Richmond, VA) has canceled all the field trips out of state because of the war. Is Houston still on or is Houston cancelled because of the war and the terrorist threats?

Here is a quote from FIRST's website (http://www.usfirst.org):

FIRST has begun to receive questions about plans for the regional events and Houston championship in the event of war or acts of terrorism. We are concerned for the safety and security of citizens facing these threats anywhere in the world, and, in particular, for all our men and women in the military.

While we recognize the impact of these events, we also understand the best course of action is to move forward with existing plans. Therefore, FIRST is continuing to do all that is necessary to deliver superb regional and championship events. We are not considering cancellations, extensions, or refunds. We do recognize the right and responsibility of each individual to judge how best to proceed. In the meantime, we'll continue to work toward a great season of Regional events and the Championship.
