I suppose 6th grade could just become another elementary music class in the worst case scenario. Problem is with choirs being out, you rule out singing as an activity with them.
I'm holding onto whatever level of calm I have until UIL comes out with their guidance. I'm also trying to think of anything I can that doesn't involve wind instruments that could be done in the worst case scenario...
The staffing may get a little bit of a break if they say you can only have so many kids in a class. Kids still have fine arts credits they have to earn.
