  • Please make sure your instrument is in working order before coming to rehearsal. Students are responsible for bringing all equipment necessary for instrument maintenance (reeds, oil, grease, etc.). To maintain a safe environment, students will not be allowed to share these items, and they will not be available for use from the school.
  • Access to the building will be limited. Please plan on bringing your own water. Students will not be allowed to use indoor water fountains or share water.
  • Social distancing guidelines will be strictly enforced.
Procedures
  • All students are required to wear a mask. Percussionists and Color Guard members are required to wear a mask at all times. Wind players must wear a mask when not playing their instruments.
  • Rehearsals will take place outside. Please be prepared with anything you may need such as sunscreen, bug spray, etc..
  • If you have your own music stand, please bring that, as well as a pencil.
  • If indoor entry is necessary, students will enter and exit through Door O (the auditorium door).
  • Every student must check in with Mr. Russell or Mr. Boron before being admitted to rehearsal. In order to maximize rehearsal time, please fill out the online self-certification survey  before arriving on campus. Please have your ID number ready. Your ID number will be entered into a system, and your temperature will be taken. If your temperature is over 100.4, we will ask that your parent/guardian pick you up at that time.
  • Students will be spaced out during rehearsals using parking spaces as a guide. Students will be in two rows. The first row will be at the end of every other line, and the second row will be placed in windows of the first row. Please see the image below
