Band Camp Information-2021
It has been decided that Band Camp this year will be held BHS. This is not our best option, but it is the only option to keep all of our students and families safe. In recent news Governor DeWine has updated COVID guidelines per the The CDC, but we will err on the side of caution with those guidelines.
This is not an ideal situation, which is why we normally go to Hiram, but student safety is our primary concern.
** ALL STUDENTS MUST ATTEND EVERY DAY, ALL DAY**
(unless COVID-19 symptoms are present)
Please do not plan any appointments, etc. during these weeks.
Just because we are home doesn’t mean their schedule is flexible.
The cost of band camp has changed due to the school district picking up the cost of a lot of extra supplies we need.
Camp payment is due by June 30, 2021. Uniform kit “under uniform” & color guard uniform items
will not be ordered unless payment for those items have been received.
