Reminders for this Week - Update #1 9/22/2020

Items 8 & 9 added 9/22


  1. Virtual Students - you must attend morning and evening rehearsals.

  2. No early rehearsal on Monday - Full Band Rehearsal on Monday evening from 6-8:30 pm.

  3. Early morning rehearsals will begin at 6:40 however students need to be in their spot for attendance at 6:30. We will begin health screening and cycling students through instrument storage at that time. 6:30 does not mean 6:35. Please be prompt and be prepared. Morning rehearsals are Tuesday-Friday.

  4. Attendance policy. Marching rehearsals are required. From this point on failure to be at a rehearsal without an excused absence will result in a reduction of your participation grade. We were being lenient as school was getting started since this year was so different, but at this point everyone needs to be at every rehearsal until our marching season has ended. Missing a rehearsal will reduce your grade by 20 points for each day missed.

  5. Game Changed from Friday to Thursday 9/24.

  6. Uniform for the week will be, Band Shirt, Band Shorts, Marching Shoes, Short black socks, and your SOS baseball cap. If you ordered a new one they are in and will be passed out this week just prior to heading to the game.

  7. No early morning rehearsal on Friday 9/25.

  8. * Band Fundraiser on Saturday 9/26/2020 beginning at 5 pm at Chipotle in Weatherford. For more information click on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/events/337199404098915/
