VERY IMPORTANT - We are NOT marching Cary Parade tomorrow!

Due to the very realistic threat of poor weather tomorrow - and this includes sub-40 degree temperatures - we are NOT going to march the Cary Parade tomorrow.  Consider the following negatives:  student exposure to temperatures in the 30's for 2 hours; instruments performing poorly due to sticky keys and valves; parents/family/friends waiting for quite a while in these temperatures - are we really having fun?  I've been here before and trust me, it's not fun.  Yes, it may snow...but that gets old really quick when you start getting wet.  I'm going to err on the side of staying warm, safe and dry...and healthy!  We've got a big concert next week and a major trip at the end of the month.  I do not take cancelling out on an event lightly; however, I hope you all understand my reasoning. 

Enjoy your day!
