Pre-Band Schedule

Rehearsal Schedule Information

Once school begins, the band will still be practicing in person and on campus each morning before school and into 1st hour. That information is now available on the Marching Band Main Page.

The rehearsal schedule for the remainder of pre-band is listed below. 

-----------------------------------------

Below is the information for the third and fourth week of pre-band (August 10-14, August 17-21). 

Students in the building will continue to be limited in number and duration. Most students will not enter the building. Students are to bring everything needed for rehearsal with them and take it home on a daily basis. Exceptions will be made for percussion and tuba players. Lockers will not be assigned until school begins. 

All students will still have to complete a Health Check In Form on a daily basis before coming to rehearsal. It is a short series of questions answered online (computer or mobile device). The link to the Health Form is available HERE. Students will only be able to fill out the form an hour before rehearsal, not the night before. 

All students must have a mask with them at all times and ready to put on/take off as instructed. Masks must be worn when inside a building. There will be times when masks are worn outside on campus as well. During times of physical exertion and/or while playing instruments, masks will be taken off. Social distancing must be maintained before, during, and after all rehearsals. 

Students are not to share any equipment with other students (water, instruments, music, stands, etc) with other students. Time will be spent at the end of each rehearsal to clean and disinfect equipment and facilities for the next days rehearsal. 

The ability to have rehearsals depends on each individual doing their part to help make the learning enviroment safe for all to continue to enjoy this activity. 

For safety reasons - students are not allowed to drive from football fields to music building during pre-band. Regardless of outside rehearsal location - students are to park at the music building and walk to different rehearsal areas. There is construction happening on B street in front of the high school the next few weeks, so the route that you normally drive to get to the band room may be blocked off. Construction is supposed to be finished by the time school starts.
