Marching Band Rehearsal Covid-19 Mitigation Guidelines
Per UIL guidelines, marching bands throughout Texas are authorized to begin summer practices beginning Monday, June 8th. They have specific guidelines that can be found at https://www.uiltexas.org/music/marching-band/marching-band-summer-practices-rehearsals-2020
Out of concern for students, staff and their families’ safety, guidelines have been established for all STISD band activities at school until further notice:
Originally, we were going to follow STISD’s “no student on campus” policy. Being that sports are continuing to work, we’ll need to as well. So, we’ll need to prepare to perform on September 11 and practices will be necessary. Here’s what we came up with...this should work and allow for enough time to put together some good marching and playing fundamentals along with some fun music to play.
All pratices will be from 4:00-6:00
September 8th -11th
Sepember 11- Performance/Home game
**Wear tennis shoes and please bring water...we are not allowed to give you water, so please take care of that.**
*There may be a change to which sections have rehearsals depending on the number of students in attendance. If we have great attendance, we’ll keep it broken up by brass/ww/guard/percussion to avoid having too many students together at one time.
