~This message is for parents who have selected for their student to participate in At-Home learning this year~
We have just received district approval to have At-Home students participate daily in their Band class at school. Transportation will be provided by the parents, not the school district. Students will be required to sign in and out daily when they arrive and leave school at the front office.
While this is not required to participate in Band, it is strongly encouraged by the directors in order to give your student the best one-on-one, in-person attention that learning a musical instrument requires. At the same time, we understand those who have health concerns who would rather their child learn at home during this time. Please understand that if you choose to have your child attend Band class daily, then you are making a committment to continue transportation for them for the duration.
Because of this year’s modified A/B block scheduling, each Band class meets at a different time and day. Some meet daily at the same time, others meet daily at different times, and some classes only meet every other day. It would be easier for us to tell you the days/times of your student’s Band class directly rather than display a general schedule here.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please email with your student’s name, instrument, and ensemble (such as Beginner, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, or Jazz Band), and we will reply with what days/times their Band class will meet. We need all responses no later than this Friday, August 28 at 5:00pm. As always, if you have any questions please email beltonmsband AT gmail.com. Thank you for any consideration you give this request.
