Face 2 Face Update
Please note that we are strictly following best practices. We are currently asking students not to play unless instructed to do so. I am not playing my instrument at students, and require them all to be "masked up" if I play, and in turn they are not to play unless I am "masked up", with my face shield on. Students that play their instrument without permission will be asked to pack up their instrument. These measures are put in place to keep everyone safe; it is critical that students follow this protocol.
Please review this with your child, and let me know if there are any questions. We are navigating this together, and I appreciate your support.
Canvas Assignments-Grading Update
Advanced Band- Also need to look at SmartMusic for missing assignments.
Currently we are grading on completion and checking for understanding. Once we transition to mastery of content, grading will look more varied. At this time we are establishing a baseline for fundamental understanding and performance standards.
