Marching band, cheer, and dance, are all activities that students in OCPS look forward to participating in all year. The Schoolboard has recently decided to cancel these arts, while continuing with the football season. This is a devastating blow to not only the students, but the community. Both football AND music players receive scholarships, and while football is a contact sport, fall arts such as marching band are not, and can be altered to adhere to CDC rules regarding social distancing and masks. Band, cheer, and dance are more than disposable sources of entertainment. Those programs are home to so many brilliant students, who dedicate the same passion and time as football players every year. There is no reason why hundreds of students will never experience their 20-21 fall season, while football is allowed to continue. We urge the OCPS Schoolboard to modify their decision, where both sports and arts are being treated equally.
