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.

There were 240 ish yesterday. A one day spike doesn't necessarily mean the end of the world. The numbers have been going up and down every day.

Here’s a fun question. 
 

if KMEA does have a season will there be a restructure in classes for 2020? 
 

5A currently has 7 bands in it....

They actually have 9, and probably not because that's how it was prior to 2005 in 4A.

Lafayette should be on the competing list right?

Technically yes but they are awaiting further instructions from FCPS etc. I believe he is planning on some small group ie guard and percussion next week with camp Aug 3 as of now. Their situation is very fluid but I dont think it's a matter of them not wanting to compete just needing the go ahead from the district.  Keeping my fingers crossed for them!

Correct. Several football programs are in the same boat.

About to see some more programs make an announcement saying they’re going to be non-competitive this upcoming season. I know of several programs who were waiting on this vote.

Yeah........disaster.........

I’m good w the decision as long as we are not playing football. If I’m expected to have a band at games or we’re playing football playoffs and KHSAA is having their championships, that will be lots of egg in the face for KMEA.

Also hope my admin doesn’t ask about me forfeiting part of my stipend, which was also mentioned today.

KMEA didn’t cancel the season. Only SMBC.  Also I think it has another couple committees to go through before it’s official if I heard right.

I cannot find this on the ISSMA website.  Maybe I don't know where to click, but I clicked on Marching Band.
