Students enrolled in summer band will learn and practice the three foundations of becoming a successful instrumentalist. 1) Producing a characteristic sound, 2) Reading and playing music, 3) Proper assembly and care of their band instrument. The summer band curriculum covers in one week what usually takes one month for a beginning band student. Accelerate your student’s musical experience and join us this summer. Beginners only. Scholarships are available. Please enroll in only one session for your instrument.

Masks will be available at school for anyone who would like a mask but doesn’t have one. Student’s or staff’s choice to wear a mask will be absolutely supported by our staff. Masks continue to be required: On school buses, in preK programs and licensed childcare facilities Because the student day is shorter and classes are structured differently, we will use the 7 day shortened quarantine option for all exposures at school. Families who choose to take advantage of this option will need: To quarantine for a minimum of 7 days following the exposure Obtain a negative test on day 5 or later Complete the shortened quarantine form, provided by health services Return the negative test and shortened quarantine form to health services prior to return Families will continue to have the option of not testing and quarantining for 10 days Household contacts still need to quarantine for 14 days Saliva testing will be available at the middle and high schools for all students and staff on Wednesdays.

If your child has been fully immunized and you would like to share those dates with us to avoid the need to quarantine in the future, please email a picture of their vaccination card to firstname.lastname@example.org *Current summer school guidance is based on current state guidance and COVID rates in our schools, community and state.
