UPDATED MESSAGE - Rescheduled Home Football Game vs. John Overton and Senior Night (10/24)

Greetings to SCHS Band Members and Parents.
 
By now you have probably been informed that the home football game against John Overton & SCHS Senior Night, which was originally scheduled for Fri. (10/25) has now been moved to tomorrow night (Thur. 10/24).
 
We know that this change may pose an inconvenience for a few you. Many of the area high schools are moving their games to Thursday night in order to avoid the severe rain impact for Friday night. Decisions like this are not easy and we are so fortunate to have administrators who spoke to all involved parties for input on this decision. 
 
The primary concern is for student safety, especially for our football team, our dance team, cheerleaders and of course the band. We all remember the rainy season last year and the damage that rain can pose to our electronic equipment and band instruments. We also know that senior night is a special night with pictures of the students in their uniforms and parents in business attire. We certainly don't want to have a senior night with photos of band members and parents drenched.
 
An updated gig sheet has been sent out via text and can also be accessed by clicking the link.
 
 
The pep rally that was scheduled for this Friday (10/25) will be rescheduled for Friday (11/08) which will coincide with our first play-off game of the season. Band members may wear their regular school-appropriate clothes for tomorrow (10/24).
 
All senior night activities will take place as normal. Remember that band senior recognition will take place at the start of half-time. Parents and other family members will assemble on the track at 4:00 minutes on the clock during the 2nd quarter.
 
The Choir Extravaganza will still take place tomorrow evening at 7 PM. All activities associated with it will go on as scheduled. Band members who are involved with the choir performance will be able to participate in both the choir performance and the band senior night and half-time performance. As we've said before, we are so blessed to work as ONE TEAM to make sure that the students at SCHS are always taken care of. We will cover the logistics of that in class on Thursday (10/24).
 
There will be no leadership team cleaning at the end of the game since it will be a school night. We will dismiss and get the band members home as soon as we can.
 
If you are a parent volunteer who signed up for a volunteer slot and cannot make it due the change of the date (we totally understand) please make sure to access the sign-up genius and update it so that we can have the correct badges printed.
 

That's all for now. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility regarding student safety and rescheduling of the game.
 
Talk to you soon,
-DB & MC
