Top Ten Things To Know About The Hybrid Band Plan
- ALL band lessons will take place virtually when your child is at home.
- Students coming for in-person learning do NOT need to bring their band instruments with them to school.
- When students are at school they will participate in drum circles with equipment purchased by the Sun Prairie Education Foundation! Thank you SPEF!!
- Students participating in band online either fulltime or on the days they are not at school will continue performing on their band instruments.
- Mr. Gleason will teach the in-person drum circle for 6th grade band classes and Mrs. Haraldson will teach the in-person drum circle for 7th grade band classes.
- Mr. Gleason will teach the online band classes for 7th grade and Mrs. Haraldson will teach the online band classes for 6th grade.
- Weekly band lessons will continue on the current schedule.
- Students participating in the drum circle will be supplied fabric gloves that they can keep in the band room and wear while playing the drums. This, along with other mitigation efforts, will prevent the spreading of any germs.
- As a reminder, Dane County current mask mandate does not permit playing wind instruments (brass and woodwinds) indoors in schools. However, a new study is expected to be published soon and will provide more specific information for Dane County Public Health to review. Our hope is that with this new research, DHS and DPI will update mitigation requirements allowing us to return to in-person playing in band with appropriate mitigation measures in place. We will keep you posted!
