Band Updates #1

March 23, 2020

I hope everyone is doing well and adjusting to our new way of living.  A lot has changed in the past week.  Here are several updates about several band items.

REMOTE LEARNING

Continue to monitor the remote learning tab at the top of the website.  The password was emailed to parents and students last week.  Students are doing well with this “new” school.  Keep pressing forward.

ISSMA ORGANIZATIONAL

All ISSMA events for the remainder of the school year have been cancelled.

SPRING PARADES

Red Regiment will not be able to perform in the Wakarusa Maple Syrup Parade…should there even be one.  Red Regiment will continue to plan for the Memorial Day Parade until we hear otherwise from the mayor’s office.  The parade practice schedule will need to be modified when/if we return to school.   Watch the website for updated details.

PIZZA FUNDRAISER

With day to day uncertainty and now the closure of the school building, delivery of the pizza has been postponed until May.

5K RUN

The 5K Run is cancelled for 2020.

BAND CAMP

We were already in a difficult situation with band camp for next fall.  There is one less week available between the end of the fair and the start of school.   After careful consideration of several scheduling options, we will need to have some practices during fair week.   We will follow the same plan Concord uses every year during the fair.  Students that need to show an animal will go show their animal(s) and then return to practice as quickly as they can.  The practices during fair week will run from 8 a.m.-noon only.  While this is not ideal, there aren’t any other great alternatives for this year.

FALL REGISTRATION

Fall registration deadline is April 2.  Here are updated dates.

  • Online Registration Due – APRIL 2
  • Commitment Form And Deposit Due – MAY 6

 

Be safe and watch for future band updates.
