Calendar - Month of October and Beyond
After school rehearsals will continue at their normal times on Tuesday's and Thursday's for the duration of the month of October. We have two regular season home football games left (Fri. Oct.16 vs. Lebanon & Fri. Oct. 30 vs. Smyrna). 

A play-off game schedule has not been determined at this time. While the band will not travel to away play-off games, it is possible that SCHS may host a play-off game at home. In that scenario, the band will perform.

As football season winds down, a calendar with additional dates for SCHS Band activities for the remainder of the fall semester will be issued.

Mid-State Band audition registration will open on Tuesday, October 13. A registration link will be sent via REMIND and email. Auditions are $10.00 per entry. Cash or checks will be accepted (made payable to SCHS Band).

SCHS Band - Monday Night Rundown (9-07-2020)

Good evening SCHS Band members and Families,
 
We hope this email finds you well and enjoying the labor day weekend. What follows is some important information for the week. As always, if you have any questions, please contact us.
 
Rehearsal Time Change
We will now make the following changes to the rehearsal times for all Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals:
 
5:15 PM - Color Guard, Percussion, Drum Majors, and Field Crew
5:30 PM - All Woodwinds and Brass Sections.
 
Rehearsals will now end at 7:30 PM. We want to make sure that students get home at a decent hour to eat, complete homework, etc.
 
Friday Night Lights - Week 4
We appreciate all band members and families and their flexibility with the sudden calendar change. Keep in mind that much of this is because SCHS plays schools in the MNPS school district. The MNPS district is not allowing any sports or extra-curricular activities. It's possible that there may be further changes to our performance calendar to make-up for the vacancies in the schedule. As always, we will notify all band members and families as soon as we receive notification.
 
It was great to see so many parents at the game, even if it was from afar. Please continue to check GoFan if you are interested in single-game tickets. No tickets will be sold at the gates.
 
 
Just a friendly reminder that no parents or visitors will be permitted near the band or in the building on Friday (either before or after the game). We are trying to follow all school guidelines to keep the band members and staff safe during this pandemic.

Friday Night Lights - Week 3
This will be our first public performance since March. With that there are lots of things that will be different for the time being. The main thing to know is that as much as we love having parents helping out and band alumni stopping by to visit on game days, that is simply not going to be able to take place this year.
 
No parents or visitors will be permitted near the band or in the building on Friday (either before or after the game). We are trying to follow all school guidelines to keep the band members and staff safe during this pandemic.
