Re: T.B.A. CANCELLED! only VIRTUAL now! This is BS!
What about the convention employees and all those businesses in San Antonio that survive because all those band directors show up? Just sayin. As you said, band should never be about the individual. But I see which side you have chosen.....
I 100% agree! You should be able to make the choice to go to TBA. Then, you can go ahead and come back to teach all of your students. Then they can go home and tell their parents/grandparents/siblings how brave their director was for going to TBA in spite of this scary hoax. When the grandparents/parents/siblings/YOUR STUDENTS start calling out sick for covid, or have to say goodbye to a loved one, I'm sure they will all be super thankful about you "getting excited" and "making your own choice" to go to this convention. After all, you're a grown adult and can make these decisions.
I'm glad the leadership of TBA made this decision, it stops people like you from making a choice that very well could jeopardize the health and safety of your students and their families. This isn't about you. Band should never be about the individual. Get over yourself.
