“Wildcat” Marching Band Update on July 23, 2020

After speaking with Mr. Bills and Mr. Davern, we have decided to push our start date back to the week of September 21 in alignment with our athletic programs.  If allowed, we will most likely be rehearsing Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights from 6-8 p.m., starting on Tuesday, September 22.

Some things we all need to keep in mind:

  • The first week in August, Governor Cuomo is scheduled to make his announcement on how schools will reopen.
  • No spectators are being allowed to attend fall college sports.  If we are allowed to have high school co-curricular activities, there could likely be a similar ban on spectators.
  • Many band circuits have already cancelled their fall seasons, including Bands Of America. Our local circuit, the NYS Field Band Conference still has yet to make a determination about the fall season.
  • Ultimately, your family will decide what is best for your health and safety.

Stay safe, stay healthy & stay POSITIVE!

Musically Yours,
Mr. Stachnik
