Re: District "cold weather" rehearsal policy?
Yup. A kid getting pneumonia is not worth a tighter formation at halftime. Don't run your band like drum corps or the army. MAYBE if the kids elected to rehearse for a competition event, maybe. But yes, rehearsal slightly above freezing is reckless for what you're rehearsing.
Iíve heard of lots of districts having this policy. Sorry but you should be thinking of the students and not the rehearsal time.
