Marching Band Fall 2020
Greetings everyone, I hope everyone is having a safe, healthy and relaxing Summer. I have been hesitant to send information out because of all the unknowns that are still surrounding start of school in the Fall. We at least now know that classes will be virtual for the first half of the year, and we will TEMPORARILY be using a 4x4 block schedule model for the 20-21 school year. I am very unsure and apprehensive about how this schedule will affect the program. Rest assured that the HCPSS Music Office has a seat at the table in all of the discussions and our MRHS administration will do their very best to support us.

 In consultation with the HCPSS Music Office and the MRHS administration it is with a heavy heart that I announce that all Marching Band activities for the Summer and Fall are canceled. This decision saddens me greatly, but for the sake of the heath and safety of all staff and students, it is a prudent one. There are some schools attempting virtual marching experiences. I have investigated these ideas and there are significant technology and equipment barriers that, in my best judgement, would be too burdensome for both our staff and students. I encourage you to do your best to stay engaged with your instrument so that when things get back to "old normal" we can make music in person and together again! I will update you as I get a more clear picture of how the new schedule will look. Again, stay safe and healthy and enjoy the rest of your Summer!
