    As with every contest/festival if you feel you need to delay until you feel safe traveling please do so. The contest/festival site will work you in through the rest of the day. Feel free to travel later on the contest day and we will work you in later in the day. A school never has to travel in weather that you feel is unsafe. Your students for District contest will be seen and have the opportunity to perform for state consideration. Please contact your Contest Manager if you cannot make the contest site or will be delayed.
