Field Renovation Update

We will be traveling to Longfellow:


September 16th and September 17th


This was communicated with students last week and we have already completed lunch orders.



Field Update

---

The most recent communication I have received from the District has us starting rehearsal at East this Friday (Sept. 20th).


Below is what I have communicated with the District:


We will plan on being on the field on Friday.


We already cancelled our Buses to Longfellow for Thursday and Friday. Thursday because we are planning on rehearsing parade marching for Homecoming and Friday our buses were cancelled due to lack of availability. If for some reason we can't be on the field on Friday, we have our first competition on Saturday and will need to be on the field Saturday.


If we can't get on the field Friday and Saturday we will be forced to pull out of our competition Saturday evening.


While we are experiencing great success with our show, our inability to hold marching sectionals and rehearse daily is hindering us from catching up students that missed camp and we really feel that the show is not at competition level yet.


Not being able to rehearse three days prior to a performance and on the day of the performance would result in us cancelling the performance. I can't see any Varsity sport being expected to not have practice and still play a game, we are no different in that aspect.


Please know that I am waiting on communication from the district to make this decision.

When I receive communication Mr. Krubsack and I will communicate with you ASAP.


Thank you for your understanding.
