Re: Are marching uniforms allowed?
Many of us have concerns on the fitting process and being unable to socially distant while you do it, but like everything there is no rule against it. Additionally it's a pain in the butt since sometimes it takes a few tries to get a uniform right. If a kid wore a uniform it should be quarantined for 72 hours realistically before another kid tries it. (I'm not convinced you can sanitize them with anything that won't hurt the uniform short of dry cleaning them) We wore shorts/jeans/shirts for games this season. We are trying to get uniforms setup for contest here in a couple weeks.
If you're not going to contest I wouldn't change at this point with so little of the season left - especially if you're on your own now! Admin having a kid be the one to expose/be exposed in close contact with every member of the band doesn't seem like a good idea. Normally our drum majors are the ones who handle this for us. This year my assistant is taking the lead on it. With a leadership midstream this year I don't think this is the year to add something to your plate. That being said sometimes you have to say 'yes sir' or 'yes ma'am' and do what your boss wants you to do.
