Marching Band Rehearsal Schedule

Dear Parents and Students,

Below is the information for this year’s marching band rehearsal schedule based upon the new high school schedule. In short, there have been so many moving parts to this puzzle and it has been a great challenge trying to get them all in place. The band staff thanks you for your patience while this has been worked out. With school beginning later in the morning, the majority of rehearsals will take place in the morning with fewer rehearsals happening after school than in the past.

One of the challenges with a later start time was the availability of the football stadium for athletics and the band program. As a result, the track & field stadium is being resurfaced with turf so that both groups will be able to have practices/rehearsals on a consistent basis.

For the band, this means that the Track is available every morning at the indicated times below. The stadium is not available on Monday but is the remainder of the week. With the potential to have rehearsals at two different facilities at the same time for selected days, it will be necessary to stay connected. The most effective way to communicate to students and parents will be determined and implemented before school begins.

Monday – 7:45-9:45 (brass, woodwinds, battery, and guard at the track. Front ensemble in band room). 4:30-7:30pm Guard sectionals at the track.

Tuesday – 7:00-8:30 Block Days 2,4,6 – early morning rehearsal before school begins. (Main rehearsal at stadium. A group or groups may also rehearse at the track).

Wednesday – 7:45-10:25 Block Days 1,3,5 – Sectionals for the 1st hour (7:45-8:45). Full rehearsal for the remainder of 1st hour (8:45-10:25). (Sectionals will most likely be split locations. Main rehearsal at stadium. A group or groups may also rehearse at the track).

Thursday – 7:45-9:45 (Main rehearsal at stadium. A group or groups may also rehearse at the track). Rifle Sectional 4:30-5:30 – location TBD each week. Evening Rehearsal 5:30-7:30 PM at stadium.

Friday – 7:45-9:45 (Main rehearsal at stadium. A group or groups may also rehearse at the track).

The website calendar has been updated to reflect the changes in the rehearsal schedule for the fall semester. Updates for the spring calendar will take place in late August/early September.

Concert Season Rehearsal and Winter Guard Rehearsal Schedules have not been posted yet. It will be added to the website well before concert season begins so families can make necessary plans.
