Band Update from Mr. Bond 7/26/20

We were just given more information from Katy ISD regarding student activities this week. The district message reads:

“Due to the Harris County Local Health Authority Order issued on Friday, July 24 requiring all school sponsored events and activities not take place in-person, Katy ISD will temporarily suspend all student activities through Tuesday, July 28. Katy ISD will review the existing orders issued by both state and local officials and an update will be provided by 5PM on Tuesday regarding the possibility of resuming student summer activities. It is important that we ensure compliance with local orders as well as provide our students opportunities to continue participation in their extra-curricular programs in preparation for the new school year.”

I did receive clarification that virtual rehearsals could still be held, so guard and percussion members should plan to attend virtual rehearsals beginning tomorrow. If we are not given permission to begin in person rehearsals, then winds should plan to attend virtual rehearsals beginning on Wednesday. Mr. Spooner and Mr. Vizza will send out more information this evening with instructions on how to connect with them and what you will need. Once we receive clarification on Tuesday regarding in person rehearsals, I will send out information on how the rest of summer band will be handled.
