Greetings to all! I hope this email finds you healthy and enjoying a little sunshine.
I appreciate your patience in getting marching band information out to you with everything going on. Usually, I have the calendar and music out to everyone before the end of the school year… I cannot wait to hear all of the students play again. It will really be something. We are going to do our best to make music in these difficult times.
As we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, safety is our first priority. Our usual band camp schedule will be abbreviated to make sure we are following health guidelines. See the attached guidelines for health and safety. Face coverings must be worn at all times as long as you are not playing your wind instrument. It is important that we follow these guidelines carefully, as it will allow us to continue to participate together. As things change, we will be following all best practices and guidelines as they emerge.
Below is the schedule for band camp. Please mark your calendars. As we are spending less time together this year, it is important that we are all present during these times. More information on the rest of the season will be shared as available. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
