This website will be your go-to source of information. Please take time to explore.
Band Notes (E-newsletter) is emailed every week during marching season (usually Mondays), and periodically the rest of the year. Band Notes contains the schedule for upcoming games/competitions, calendar updates and other pertinent information you will need to know. Please look for Band Notes – it will be your lifeline! Other ad-hoc emails will also be issued as needed.
From 2021, we will be using Smore for email distribution. This is our primary method of communication and it is essential ALL parents receive these emails. All current band parents should be automatically added to the distribution list, but if you are not receiving emails from us, or if you want to receive messages at an alternative or additional email address (a spouse email, a work email etc), click on the link below.
*(Occasionally, emails from Smore may go into spam folders. One way to hopefully avoid this is to add the email address it is sent from to your contacts list).
It is essential that parents and students join current year band app groups, in order to ensure receipt of all the latest information. We use the band app to issue information at short notice, provide reminders, issue polls or requests for information etc. In order not to be overwhelmed with messages not particularly relevant to yourself, we advise you only request to join the groups reflective of your role. Students should consult their section leaders to verify if there is also a separate Band App group for their section.
All join requests will be vetted – we require that you put your first AND last name. Profile pictures are useful, as well as listing “Parent of [your child’s name]” as your role (or your instrument if you are the student). Make sure you have notifications set appropriately – you don’t want to miss out!
