Week 6 KJHS Band Update

Drop Off/ Pick Up • Weekly Grades • Wire Stands • Band PPE

We are going live every day!

In an effort to offer the same opportunities to our Virtual Learners, we are going live EVERY day during our band times. We will be posting sectional and full ensemble information in our streams so students can still participate in band every day from home.

Drop Off/ Pick Up Procedures

Parents, our administration wanted us to share the following information with you to help smooth out drop off and pick up for car riders.


Morning Procedures:

All Students will come in through the front doors by the gym for Temperature Checks/ Check In. After they have had their Temperature checked, they will go to the Band Hall to drop off their equipment with Mr. Diaz. Once instruments are dropped off, students will return to the gyms or eat breakfast.


Afternoon Procedures:

Afternoon car riders can exit out of the Band Hall doors. Parents, you can park on the south side of the building (near the Band Hall) to pick up your students.


Morning Athletes:

Volleyball players can bring their instruments down to the band hall during their after practice/ before school break. Football players can bring their instruments to the side door of the band hall before 8:25am (Mr. Diaz has to be at JAA for class soon after).


Afternoon Athletes:

Football players need to take their instruments with them to the field house after school before practice.

Weekly Progress Grades

In order to streamline our weekly grades, we will be entering our Daily Grades as one Weekly Progress grade in Gradebook. Students will generally have a playing or written assignment in band every day. These daily formative grades will be grouped together as a Weekly Progress Grade, each worth 20 points a piece.

Band PPE

Band PPE has been distributed to all of our In-Person students! Here are links to replacement items as needed:
