I know that an email has recently gone out to all of the Freshman parents concerning the cancellation of Freshman Orientation due to safety concerns. The school is undergoing a very much needed upgrade of our HVAC systems, the new central garden project, the pending repaving of the parking lots, etc. At the present time, it appears that the majority of the work is running well behind, thus, making it not safe for students to come on campus.
After having been on campus the last couple of days, I cannot bring your children to the school as there is not one place in the entire school that has been completed and could be deemed safe to bring students in for any activity. I am waiting for more information as to the timetable of completion so that our band camp may ensue unimpeded. Currently, our administration is working diligently to communicate with the school board to gather information about this predicament.
At the moment, I am keeping the schedule as is should the work be completed on time. However, after having been in the band room (and the rest of the school), there is no way we could possibly do anything as the room has effectively been disassembled. I currently do not have access to any lockers nor instruments in any usable fashion. We also do not have a place anywhere in the school to practice.
Please check back here periodically as I do not have another manner to easily reach everyone, including the Freshman families. For those of you that do see this, please share with other families as many do not look here, respond to emails, nor look at the Facebook page.
