For the purposes of marching band rehearsals and practices, schools must require students, staff, and visitors to wear face coverings when entering and exiting facilities and practice areas, and when not actively practicing. Face coverings must be worn anytime six feet of distance cannot be maintained unless it is not practical to do so while practicing. Schools may, for example, allow students to practice while playing wind instruments. However, schools must require students and staff to wear face coverings as they get into positions that allow for safe spacing. |
Students and staff should maintain at least six feet of distance from all sides when not actively practicing or rehearsing. When actively practicing and rehearsing, students and staff should maintain at least ten feet of distance all sides when possible. Schools must require students who are not actively practicing to wear cloth face coverings.
Clear as mud?? Yeah, that's UIL for you. Try to keep your kids as safe as you can. Do you best, if they show up, they understand the risks. The teachers are the only people who don't really get a choice in this. The young children of teachers don't get a choice at all.
