Required Band Forms - Past Due

We will cover all required forms as needed during the virtual meetings. All students and parents must complete these required forms. All forms may be signed digitally for 2020-2021.

Returning members, there are no new forms for 2020-2021, however you will need to sign new copies. If you would like to go ahead and sign all your forms, you may do so digitally.

Digital Signing Process

  • You will need a separate email address for the parent/adult signer and for the student
  • After providing these addresses you will receive the forms to sign online or on your device
  • Start the process by clicking here.

You may also pick up hard-copies of these forms at Summer Band and return them, however for health and efficiency, the digital process is preferred. Copies for printing are available on the members page of the website. (Members page password is creekband2020)

New members are welcome to go ahead and sign all forms, however you may have questions and can wait until after the virtual meeting.

2019-2020 Virtual Band Banquet

To allow for our Senior Class of 2020 who may be quarantining for college or already there, we are going to move our 2019-2020 Creek Band Banquet online.

The banquet will be on Zoom and live streamed. Participation in the banquet will be limited too 100 logins because of Zoom limitations. Everyone else will be able to view on Facebook live. 2020 Seniors will get first priority, followed by 2019-2020 Leadership and then there will be a "lottery" for all other 2019-2020 Creek Band Members. I'm hoping we will be able to get everyone in.

Information on the banquet is coming by Monday!

COVID-19 Protocols

As we get started for 2020-2021, there are protocols unique to the moment that must be followed.

The first priority for the Clear Creek Band program will always be the safety and well-being of the students, families, and staff. To that end, we will follow all CCISD, TEA, UIL, and governmental guidelines.

We ask everyone's patience and understanding as we work through these challenging times. As we are in a time where protocols, recommendations, and guidelines often change daily (or quicker), please know we are always doing everything we can to ensure the safety of all the members of the Creek Band Family.

You can always find the most recent version of the guidelines here.

Procedures for Rehearsal - Week 2

Please review before arriving at rehearsal. Yes, it's a lot, but we must keep each other healthy and safe. This will pass...

  • This form must be completed by all participants in the rehearsal: students, staff, and any parent who enters the rehearsal space.
  • Any person who answers "yes" to one or more questions will not be permitted to participate.

Arriving at Rehearsal

  • All students should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to every rehearsal. (This is a standard suggestion.)
  • No students/parents will be permitted inside. Students should be dropped off in the band parking lot, there will be student leaders helping you.
  • Students who drive should park near the band hall.
  • Immediately upon leaving your car, mask protocols are in effect. You must be wearing a mask when you arrive at rehearsal.
  • Students will be checked in at a tent near the marching band tower in the band parking lot.

During Rehearsal

  • Masks will be worn by all students and staff at all times unless otherwise instructed.
  • Masks may be removed when rehearsing outdoors and students are spaced at a minimum of 7.5 feet apart.
  • Masks may be removed when driving water (no sharing of water bottles will be permitted), however students must be at least 6 feet apart. This will be monitored and enforced.
  • Percussion and Guard students will follow directives from Mr. Coleman and Mr. Zamora. These two groups will be the only groups that do any work inside, but with careful social distancing procedures.
