Re: District "cold weather" rehearsal policy?
The Cold does not give you pneumonia, that being said freezing and near freezing temps are not worth it.
"My baby was already suffering from a head cold, and their director made them go outside in 30 degree weather. Now he/she has pneumonia and we don't have the money to pay doctor bills - and this wouldn't have happened if the band director hadn't forced them to be out in the cold."
It's about limiting liability, nothing more. It's not about being babies, it's about CYA.
So let's say it is below the prescribed temperature all week? You never rehearse halftime that week?
People need to stop being babies about everything.
It is cold. Put a jacket on and get outside!
