    Magoffin County HS are Hornets. Middlesboro HS are Yellow Jackets. That’s the closest I can come up with off the top of my head.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    There were 500+ cases in KY today. If that trend continues the governor is likely to roll back school sports/activities and probably delay the start of school for everyone. When/If that happens marching band for 2020 is finished.

    West Virginia issued guidance today that prohibits band camps.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    Not necessarily. If cases keep going up schools will have to move start dates later and possibly go online. You can’t justify having in person sports/activities if school is online. The governor will also put a halt to activities if this upward trend continues or if his mask order gets knocked down by the courts.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    Cancelling school in general isn’t going to happen. There will be some form of school in the fall whether it’s in person, online, NTI, or some hybrid combination.

    You included private schools on your list. With that in mind there are 538 entities that claim to be high schools in Kentucky (public and private). 122 (as you say) out of 538= 22.67% Your claim that a high school band director in Kentucky is expected to field a competitive band is in fact fake news.
