MARCHING BAND RECOMMITMENT - DUE TUESDAY!

On Friday 8/7, Mr. Protzman hosted a parent meeting on Zoom highlighting important updates to the 2020 Marching Band schedule and financial obligations.   If you missed the meeting, a link to the presentation and Marching Band 2020 Recommitment form was emailed to each family on Friday evening. As outlined in the meeting, each student/family is asked to complete the Marching Band Recommitment Form by Tuesday, August 11th.    We will wait until everyone has had the opportunity to submit the Recommitment Form before processing student refunds and applying consumable fee credits.  We anticipate starting that process the week of August 17th.  

Recommitment Form 

 

 If you have any questions, please share them on this google form and we will post answers Monday!  

Reimagined Season--Submit Questions 

FROM THE UNIFORM CREW

Seniors

If you would like to have your uniform for your senior pictures, contact Mrs.Corey at uniforms@masonbandboosters.com.  Give me the date you want your uniform and I’ll let you know the sign out procedure. 

 

Junior and Sophomore Returning Marchers 

If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for your uniform fitting.  ALL RETURNING MARCHERS NEED A UNIFORM FITTING!  Sign ups are in Charms > Volunteers > Junior/Sophomore Fittings. Dates are on 8/10 and 8/11. Juniors and sophomores who are NEW marchers, please wait for NEW MARCHER fittings.

 

Freshmen/New Marchers

For those who were not fitted on Saturday, please be on the lookout this week for an email announcing additional fitting dates.

 

Uniform Fitting COVID Procedures

In order to comply with Covid mandates and procedures, please also note the following:

  • You must have a mask and you will need to wear it for the entirety of your fitting
  • Only the marcher may enter the building.  
  • We will have someone monitoring arrivals and doing Covid screenings.
  • Because of our stringent safety practices, it is possible you may have to come back for a second session if the piece you need happens to be out for cleaning.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we adapt our processes in an effort to create a safe and healthy environment for everyone, and still make sure all marchers look fantastic for this unusual season.

If you have any questions, please contact us at uniforms@masonbandboosters.com.
