Field Renovation Update

Thank you all for your hard work during Band Camp. It was extremely rewarding to work with you all and I can't wait to see where the season takes us.

Due to the Activity Field not being completed we will be going offsite for rehearsals beginning September 5th. We were really hoping that the field would be complete enough for us to begin rehearsing next week but the most recent communication has the field being completed mid September with hopes of us tentatively being able to utilize the field starting September 16th.

We will be offsite for rehearsal on the following days:

September 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th

We are still scheduled to be at Hart Park for our first Marching Symposium on September 12th

On the days we are traveling to Longfellow below is our schedule:

11:50am Depart East

12:10-12:50pm Rehearsal

12:50pm Load Instruments/Return to East

Students should either bring their lunch or place an order for a bag lunch from the district for those days. To optimize our time students will not have time for hot lunch. The district is paying for lunch for any student interested in taking hot lunch on the days we will be at Longfellow. You also have the option of sending your student with a bag lunch, please keep in mind they will not have access to a microwave.

Lunch Options:




In addition to one of the above entrées you will receive one bag of chips, one piece of fruit, one serving of vegetables, and one water.

Students that wish to receive a lunch for our first must complete the lunch order form by midnight tonight 9/3/19 for all travel dates. Students will be given time during class today to complete the form. Google Form (only accessible for students)

We cannot wait for the field to be completed, it is going to be so nice to walk out our back to rehearse.
