Dear Athens Drive Band students and parents,
I am excited to announce that rehearsals for Percussion and Guard will begin this week according to the following schedule:
Tuesday, Nov. 10
4:00-5:30pm -Wind Ensemble Percussion
6:00-7:30pm -Concert Band Percussion
Thursday, Nov. 12
4:00-5:30pm -Marching Band Percussion
6:00-7:30pm -Symphonic Band Percussion
A few quick reminders:
1) These rehearsals are OPTIONAL, but highly encouraged for the students involved.
2) All students must go through a health screening process (symptom and temperature check, and questions related to contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID) in the parking lot outside the band room. This includes the guard as we do not know where you will be rehearsing as of the date of this letter.
3) Once rehearsals have concluded, we ask you to leave campus immediately.
We have not been given any instructions from Wake County as to when we will be able to begin rehearsing; however, we were told that all the bell covers/special face masks for wind players have arrived at central office. Keep your fingers crossed that good news is on its way!
I realize that this “beginning” does not include everyone, but it is definitely a step in the right direction and “ya gotta luv that!”
