A Baltimore City Public Schools student died Tuesday while on a field trip in Cecil County, the school system said.

Andre Riley, a spokesman for the school system, said the seventh-grade student at Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School had a medical emergency while attending a field trip at NorthBay Adventure Camp in Northeast.

Riley said he could not disclose medical details about the students, but said the student did not die in an accident.

NorthBay Adventure Camp specializes in outdoor and nature activities for school children. Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School and the Middle Alternative Program were also at the camp on Tuesday.

A request for comment from NorthBay Adventure Camp was not immediately returned Thursday.

Riley said that city schools assigned counselors and social workers to Baltimore Montessori in the city's Greenmount West section to support students and staff individually and in groups. 

"The situation is difficult, and we are committed to providing the care our community will need," Riley said.

Baltimore City Public Schools released a statement following the death of the student, Sunday. 

The letter states  in part, "Since the tragedy, City Schools has been in frequent communication with NorthBay Adventure Camp. NorthBay will conduct a full investigation of this incident and provide its findings to City Schools."
