WFISD sits out competitive marching band season 2020

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - WFISD has announced marching bands will not be participating in competitive marching season this fall, due to concerns of the spread of COVID-19.

The competitive marching season involves massive amounts of time, planning, energy and funding, and the Fine Arts Department has made the decision to use these funds to support a different marching experience this year.

Each high school will still put on a marching show, but it will be shorter in length and include a number of safety precautions for the students.

The head band directors of each school will have more information in the next few weeks.
