Why do you guys wait so long to release the dates? You guys are the only ones that havent released for March 2020.

What's happening is pretty unusual.  SW normally opens schedules 6-7 months out. I suspect the airline is waiting for some indication about whether or not MAXs will be flying in early 2020. By then MAXs will make up 10% of the fleet. I'm pretty sure the airline doesn't want to run the risk of cancelling 10% of it's flights.

I see the flights were released until Mar 6 2020 - unfortunately I need to book Mar 7-14th.   I understand the next release is scheduled for Sep 26th but was told to check back on site to see if date changes.  Where on the SWA site are release dates posted and how far before the release date, if changed, would it be updated?  Thanks -

Here's where you can check on the next release date. There is no way that I know of to predict if or when it might change.
