HHS BACK TO SCHOOL - 
BAND OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS


Good Evening - 

As we near the deadlines for families to make their back to school decisions we wanted to reach out and offer a bit of clarification regarding the options available for our band students. Moving forward, the extended band camp schedule has not changed for the weeks of August 17th-August 28th. The following information is provided in relation to our virtual learning rehearsal schedule slated for September 7th - September 25th. 
 

Virtual Learning Rehearsal Schedule 
September 7th - September 25th

The following schedule will be implemented for the first three weeks of “at-home” instruction. While school will be taught online for the first three weeks, UIL programs have been permitted on campus rehearsals / practices. 

IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION:
If you are a student who will be opting for in-person instruction this fall, you will be expected to attend ALL rehearsals listed below. These rehearsals become an extension of the curricular classroom and student attendance will be documented and reflected in the individuals overall band grade throughout the duration of the fall. More information regarding attendance policies and procedures will be shared with students at a later date. 

AT HOME INSTRUCTION :
If you are a student who is opting to enroll in the at-home learning option but still wish to participate in the marching band this fall, you will be expected to attend all rehearsals scheduled outside of the school day and attendance will be enforced in relation to the students participation / etiquette grade. Students who are enrolled in at-home learning will not be expected to report to campus during their designated ensemble time scheduled during the school day. Those students will participate in their band class virtually during their scheduled ensemble period through an asynchronous learning platform.

All evening and morning rehearsals will be held outdoors. For the evening rehearsals listed above, students will be responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from school. For the morning rehearsals, students will be responsible for arranging their own transportation to school. Hays CISD will provide transportation home for these students so they may continue their online instruction.  Morning rehearsals will end at 8:15AM and students will be given a “grab and go” breakfast provided by Hays CISD.
 
Buses will leave HHS at 9:00AM and routes will be created based on student needs. Parent’s will have until August 27th to elect for transportation services. It should be noted that students will not be dropped off at each individual home but rather at cluster locations including nearby schools and neighborhood hubs. These exact drop-off locations will be determined based on the information collected by students who opt for this service by filling out the form below.
