Attention Marching Band and Color Guard Parents

Hello ALL!
I am very excited to send out a reminder that we will begin the 2021-2022 school year this coming Monday, August 2, 2021.  I am looking forward to getting us all back to work and putting us back together again.  If you have not received your summer information packet and music you will be able to obtain them next week upon arrival to the rehearsal days.  It is very important that you attend rehearsals next week.  Coming off of a year like we all just experienced, it is more important than ever to get started on solid footing for this new year.   There will be music rehearsals and marching rehearsals next week so please be prepared to participate in both.  We will be having the majority of our activity outdoors so be prepared for this as well,  Should weather be an issue we do have access to indoor practice space.  MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL INDOOR ACTIVITIES/REHEARSALS.  THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL.  We do not need to be masked outdoors so most of our rehearsal time will be spent outside.  Please make sure you bring sunscreen and a water bottle. Proper shoes are an expectation as well, NO SANDALS.  On the full day rehearsals each student must bring lunch.  Snacks and drinks will be provided. 
The schedule for next week is as follows….
MONDAY, AUGUST 2…9 AM to 12 PM.  This day is for LEADERSHIP ONLY.  All elected and appointed officers should be present.  ALL SOPHOMORE, JUNIOR, and SENIOR students are invited to attend as well.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 3…9 AM TO 12 PM.  First day of full rehearsals.  All students that are currently in town are asked to attend rehearsal.
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AUGUST 4,5,6…8 AM TO 4 PM.  Full Band rehearsals.  All students that are currently in town are asked to attend rehearsals.   There will be time for lunch each day.  Students must bring their lunch.  No student will be allowed to leave campus until 4 PM due to liability restrictions unless picked up by a legal parent/guardian.  Thank you for your understanding.
I cannot wait to see all of you.  I hope you had a great summer break.  Have a great weekend and I will see you next week.
Mr. Rutherford
