Bill Smith started this petition to Cumberland County Board of Education and

With the NCHSAA reinstating certain athletic programs and others are
being considered for spring this leaves out an important group of
students, Marching Band! These kids work just as hard and
sometimes even harder than most sports. For most of these kids
marching band is the only activity they are involved with. Many other
states consider Marching Band part of Athletics which allows them to
follow the same rules. If given the opportunity these kids can institute
safeguards and protective measures (Instrument covers, masks and
social distancing while performing are just a few) making this activity
as safe or safer than any other sporting event. If football is reinstated
so should marching band. These kids deserve to have their time as
well and if anyone can do it safely and social distance its these kids. A
few examples of how this could work are, waiting outside the gates till
halftime and when the football teams go into the locker room they
could enter, perform then leave. They could also perform while
masked just like the other kids have been allowed to do. Please
consider letting these kids shine just like the others are.
