VCHS BANDS

All VCHS Band Members must adhere to the policies of the district pertaining to COVID procedures. This is in cooperation with administration direction. These practices have been in effect since some of you have been involved in Hornet Pride or had sectionals and practice with the band and color guard. We are attaching the link for the COVID release form each parent must sign before their student can participate. Some of you have already taken care of this through athletic conditioning, If a student's parent does not have it signed, they cannot attend until done.

Let us know of any questions or concerns. 

 

Look at the VCHS/VCMS/VCIS Band Sections of the Website for more details on Info/Schedules & Times.

SLACK Communication Update 2020 for the VCHS Band

 

*New Communication Update*

 

Hello band parents and current members! This year we will be trying the app “Slack” as a means of communication. This app is easy to use and we will be able to effectively communicate to all who are on it. We will NOT be utilizing “Remind” any longer. To become included in the band reminders on Slack, please follow these steps: 

 


“Hey guys! Welcome to the new remind! The chat function is open to everyone, however we ask that only those talked to by staff post messages to keep the reminders clear and accessible. If you ever have any questions, you can respond to posted messages or chat with staff directly. 


IMPORTANT: Once you have joined the chat, click on the ( i ) icon in the top right corner. There you can ensure notifications are set to every message and the channel is not muted to ensure you don't miss a thing!”


If any questions arise, please e-mail me at kara.whitaker@usd262.net. Thanks!
