COVID INFORMATION AND STRATEGIES
With a goal of providing a safe in-person learning environment, we have implemented the following practices. They will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.
According to research, masks have been proven to reduce the transmission of aerosols released when playing musical instruments. We have supplied all students with a playing mask. They are responsible for having it at rehearsals and ensuring that it is laundered.
According to research, bell/instrument coverings have been proven to reduce the transmission of aerosols released when playing musical instruments. We made our own bell coverings the first week of school. Students are responsible for having their bell covers on while playing.
We will play outdoors as long as weather permits and will be practicing safe social distancing for all rehearsals and lessons.
CLEANING AND SANITIZING
Several extra cleaning and sanitizing practices will be part of our daily routines in band! Please watch the following videos for your instrument:
