Summer Marching Band Season Letter

Updated: Note that Sunday Rehearsal Schedule is 3-8, not 3-9 as previously posted.

Dear Band Parents and Students:

We are writing this letter to announce the start of the Spring Marching Band Field Show Season.   We have been approved to start on Sunday, April 11 and continuing until Saturday, June 12 for our Senior Recognition/Final Performance.  The season will begin on Sunday, April 11 on the new turf field at KHS from 3-8 (Leadership arrives at 12:30).   We will be rehearsing twice a week on Sundays and Thursdays, weather permitting.  In case of weather, rehearsal will be cancelled (no indoor rehearsing).

Each rehearsal will have the following guidelines:

  • Temperatures will be checked at the beginning of every rehearsal.
  • Masks will be worn at all times by Color guard, Drum Line and Pit.
  • Wind players will have their mask on but lowered while playing and up when not.
  • Attendance will be taken and maintained.
  • Social distancing will be applied.

The KHS Band students have already completed the survey for participation in the Spring Season. If a student has exercised the COVID opt out, it is understood that they will not be able to be part of the senior recognition or attend the events.  For any student that has opted out, the band directors will contact the parents to confirm this request.  It is important to note that an opt out is for health and safety reasons only.   All students who request to opt out due to Covid concerns will be honored.  Therefore, participation in sports or work is not a valid excuse.  The excusal policy for the fall season will be used for the spring season

We are very excited to starting a Spring Marching Season and look forward to performing again.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]

Sincerely Yours,

Stephen Garner and Jeffrey Giebelhaus

Kingston High School Band Directors
