SUMMER BAND WEEK 5
August 24th - August 28th


Hello - 

We are in the final stretch of our 2020 summer band camp! Week five is here and it's going to be a fun one! Students will get to work with our outstanding show choreographer, Josh Wendt in continuation of our team of virtual master class instructors. As we enter into our final week we want to reiterate the importance of following all safety protocols that have been put into place to ensure that we finish our summer camp strong and healthy! 

A survey was sent out this weekend regarding each members "intent to march" this marching season. This is a brief survey that will allow directors to begin planning marching show assignments as well as plan for official uniform orders. If you or your student have not yet filled out this survey, please do so here:

UNIFORM SIZING:

Due to the change of uniform tops for our new production "moving forward", students will need to be re-sized (measured) for the most accurate sizes. Students will be measured this week during their in-person rehearsal block (7:30-11:30am). Measurements will be structured using all safety protocols in place. 

WANT TO JOIN US?:
If you are a student who was has not been on campus these past two weeks but feel you may want to return to campus starting this week, please know that we would love to have you! By no means is there a pressure to return to campus but we want you to know that we are ready to start teaching you as soon as you and your families are comfortable returning to campus.

UPDATED SAFETY PROTOCOLS & PROCEDURES
HHS BAND - HEALTH SCREENING FORM
Booster Announcement 

Hello Band Family,

I would like to send out a giant THANK YOU to our directors, techs and our student drum majors for their hard work during summer band.  Not only have they been sweating it out right along with the kids, they work long hours before the students arrive and after they are gone, to prepare music, lessons, schedules and ensure things are organized & sanitized every single day! Mrs. Gray, our amazing music secretary, has been working diligently each day to handle all of the refunds, field the many questions posed by our parents, and assist the directors in a million ways as they prepare for school to begin.   I’d also like to send a shout out to ALL the incredible band moms and Hays Band Alumni who showed up to serve lunches; your super positive attitudes made a possibly stressful situation fun AND safe for our kids.  The Hays HS janitorial staff in the band hall and in the cafeteria were so incredibly helpful to us, and they continue to be, as they work hard to sanitize ALL THE THINGS to help keep our kids safe.  
 
Please plan to join us for the first general booster meeting of the ’20-’21 school year which will take place via ZOOM, on Tuesday September 1st @ 6:30pm.  (We will send out the meeting link the week prior.)  In the meantime, please visit the booster store, on the band website, to join the boosters and to purchase the NEW show shirt for our 2020 marching show: MOVING FORWARD.  
 
You can join the boosters at any time BUT the deadline to purchase ALL spirit items in the booster store (yard signs, decals, show shirt, clear stadium bags) will be September 8
