Hello NHS Band Students and Parents,

Our year is starting with some unprecedented challenges.  The Covid-19 virus has created a new normal for everyone.  Our plan is to make this year the very best we can for all of our students.  It will start with student safety first.

In order to ensure the best practices for our students’ safety you will notice that the attached rehearsal and performance schedule is quite short.  We are limiting rehearsal time to 2 hours or less and we have separated the band into smaller parts.  At this point there are no performances (football games or parades) scheduled due to the requirements of the state’s Phase 4.  The NHS building will not be open to students or parents except for retrieving instruments.  All rehearsals will be done outside.  In the case of bad weather we will cancel the effected rehearsal(s).  

Phase 4 attendance procedures:
