All parents are required to screen their children everyday before sending them to school for any reason. Please notify our campus nurse if your child cannot attend school due to symptoms or exposure to a positive or presumed positive case of COVID-19. Please do not send students if they have been experiencing any of the symptoms in this document:

FUTURE PLANNING - SUMMER 2021
Assuming everything is somewhat “normal” by July (I know - pretty dangerous thing to do!), I wanted to share with you all some approximate dates to plan for as we are thinking ahead to Summer Band 2021! PLEASE DO PLAN ANYTHING THAT WILL CAUSE YOUR CHILD TO MISS SUMMER BAND DURING THESE DATES:
July 26 - 27: Most likely will be M100 Leadership sessions (including ColorGuard)
July 28 - start of school in August: Summer Band for all Members (including ColorGuard)
ColorGuard and Percussion usually hold a camp during the week of July 19-23
*Confirmed dates will be posted on our band website soon. Tentative dates are there now, however, unless something changes, you can count on Summer Band during these times.
PLEASE RETURN YOUR MARCHING BAND FANNY PACKS
There is a drum case by the wipe board in the band hall to put them in. Thanks!
Please check your mybisd email for the login information sent to you this week. You can technically start recording today and have until Wednesday the 13th to submit your audition. Please read through all the information carefully and know that I will verify your recording before submitting it to be judged. Please spend some time to get a quality recording. Cuts are visible on the page the comes up when you login - in the area for each etude where you’d submit your recording. Email me if you have any questions!
Best of Luck!
BAND AUDITION RESULTS FOR SPRING 2021
Once results are finalized, (working with counselors now) we will post them. The new semester doesn’t start until January 25th so students will stay in their current band classes until then. Thanks!
WIND ENSEMBLE REHEARSALS STARTING 2ND SEMESTER
Just a reminder that those students who make Wind Ensemble (our most advanced ensemble) will need to report to school by 8am starting on January 25th, 2021. Our class will run from 8am-9:30am. This has been mentioned in class for many months now. Parents - please let me know if transportation will be an issue for your family.
