I just got out of a meeting with Sup and AD. So,apparently UIL has mandated 50% capacity at ALL events - regardless of classification. Some of the 6-man stadiums only hold 300 "officially" so...150 allowed. 75 per school. I've got 60 in my 1A band. I wonder where the other 15 people get to sit. |
HA HA - so, yes, we are going to sit in the end zone in chairs and appeal that that not count on the total. (20 in the band are cheerleaders or varsity football anyway). Still, going to be a mad scramble for those "vouchers" or whatever they decide to distribute. I'm suggesting to my band parents to stay home, let the varsity football players take these first few games - especially since we are not marching any kind of "show" until the 3rd week anyway.
All this is of course assuming we make it that far before a "shutdown", locally or statewide, due to a huge spike in cases once we all come back to school.
Buckle up folks, we're in for quite a season.
