Information for the day:
We need to discuss a few contingency plans for Tuesday. The weather forecast is calling for rain and thunderstorms a large part of the day tomorrow. With that being said, please plan accordingly as per clothing etc.
They will make no definitive decisions until tomorrow morning, very early. So the instructions have been to not leave town until we have made a phone call to determine if the contest will happen tomorrow or be postponed to later in the week, like Thursday, or one day next week.
If it is a go, the itinerary is as aforementioned. I have made arrangements for us to have a place to go since we will be waiting on buses to pick us up. We will also have food delivered to the school. We will ask students to pitch in money for the second meal, if we find ourselves stuck due to rain.
If it is postponed to later this week, it will likely be Thursday and itinerary will apply as written, just Thursday instead of Tuesday. If it is next week we will likely be in the same mode, but we will keep everyone posted as things progress.
Saturday is Pryor Marching Contest and the itinerary for Saturday will come out Wednesday or Thursday morning. Let’s get past tomorrow first.
I ask that you please be patient as we work through the details. As soon as I know, I will let you know.
Have a super Monday and we will be in touch.
