We are so excited for our first full band concert of the year. Please remember that all performances are required and count as a major test grade.

Student will wear their Informal Band Uniform. Below is the description from our Band Handbook.

"The Informal Uniform consists of the Scoggins Band t-shirt, blue jeans and casual shoes of the student’s choosing. Denim of any other color besides blue, such as green, pink, orange, purple, or black, is not allowed with the Informal Uniform.

The Beginning Band wears the ‘Informal Uniform’ at performances and other designated band functions."

Covid Positive or Quarantine?

If your child has to stay home due to being Covid positive or is quarantining we want to make band as little stress as possible. Please use the guidelines below to help your child feel at ease with expectations:

Feeling Ill: Your child does not need to practice or worry about what is going on in band. We will catch them up once they return.

Quarantine or Asymptomatic: Google Meet links will be posted in Canvas for your student to join if they are feeling well enough to participate.
