2020 Physical Exam Form Information

Good afternoon everyone, here is information regarding physical exams for Marching Band this year. For this year only, physical examinations prior to beginning marching band participation will be waived for students who have already had the exams and have documentation of such exams on record with their schools. Students new to marching band still must have the physicals. This means that incoming freshman will still need to have a physical completed before summer band camp. If an incoming freshman student has already done a physical for athletics that physical counts toward band as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Mr. Nelson at any time.

Last Band Backer Meeting

Monday 4/29 @ 6pm is our last Band Backer meeting and we need all band parents here so we can discuss summer/next years schedule, band backer membership, concession stand sign up, fundraiser, and other subjects related to our band program. We can't stress enough how important it is to have parent support an involvement. It is integral to our band program's success.
