Hello Band Parent and Guardians,

Thank you very much for getting your student ready for band class with masks and instrument covers. The students were very cooperative and willing to comply with all the safety measures to keep everyone safe. We saw some very colorful and stylish instrument cover and masks!

There have been questions about the football schedule and practice/rehearsal times for the band. Due to Covid-19 we had to do some rearranging of football games and practice/rehearsal times. After taking a survey of students’s availability we determined Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm – 7pm, starting September 8th would be best. If a student can’t get a ride home they may stay in the band room and do homework or practice. If there are circumstances preventing them from attending please let me know. Practices/Rehearsals are required for traditional brick and mortar students. If online students would like to come join, they are more than welcome to.

We will only be allowed to play at the following games:

9/11 HHS vs AHS
10/2 HHS vs Mullberry
10/9 HHS vs ZCA
10/!6 HHS vs Parish
10/30 HHS vs CCHS

We won’t be able to wear our band uniforms. Instead we will be wearing our show shirt, marching shoes and jeans. We are still collecting money for show shirts and band shoes. Order forms are in the attachment and are due by August 31st. Also in the attachment you will find information for fair-share which has been reduced due to us not wearing our uniforms for the football games. If you already paid in full the band boosters will refund you the overpaid amount.

Here are some links to stay informed on band events:
We also have a Remind account. If you would like to be added please send me your phone number cadams@pasco.k12.fl.us

Fun is still to be had at the home football games! Even though we are social distancing the band is getting closer by showing great compassion for each other. Connections and smiles have been made during the first week of school, either in person or online. Thank you again for getting your students ready!

Have a great day!
