For the remaining 5 weeks of Quarter 1, our Band 9 and Band 10 classes, and their PE backings are no longer considered learning groups. This has presented some challenges in terms of scheduling. We believe that we have come up with a solution that works now!
Band classes will function as close to “new normal” as possible. The major difference with the last half of this quarter is: YOU MUST BE SOCIALLY DISTANCED AT ALL TIMES (this now includes JR. JAZZ BAND and INTERMEDIATE JAZZ BAND). Your classes are no longer learning groups. Hand washing, masks/band masks are still required. We will now be spaced 6ft apart.
ALL BAND CLASSES WILL NOW TAKE PLACE IN THE REYNOLDS THEATRE TO ALLOW FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING.
Here’s what your AB classes will look like in terms of Band and PE starting on Tuesday, October 13th. Don’t panic! Keep reading. The information, and all of the groupings for PE are broken down and colour-coordinated.
Thank you for rolling with the changes and for being patient as we work this out. I am THRILLED that we can continue to rehearse together!!
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE STARTING BACK ON A TUESDAY SCHEDULE. MAKE SURE YOU DON’T PLAN FOR MONDAY! 🙂
STEP 1: Know your Band/PE Group
Please take note of your COLOUR AND YOUR PE GROUP as this will help you figure out where and when you need to be.
Apply your colour to the schedule below (**STARTING ON TUESDAY THIS WEEK!**).
NOTE: There will be times where you do not have a class. There will also be points where you have a full Band 9 or Band 10 rehearsal.
STEP 2: Figure out where and when your group needs to meet for Band & PE
Monday-Friday AB Band/PE Schedule for Grades 9 and 10
REMEMBER: A Block starts at 9:00am and B Block starts at 10:15am
STEP 3: Monday – Thursday Mini-Schedules
STEP 4: Fridays
Our schedule will continue to alternate Band 9 and Band 10 as always.
There will be NO PE on Fridays – therefore IF YOU DO NOT HAVE BAND then you have FRIDAYS OFF (PERFECT!! MORE TIME FOR HOME PRACTI… ok, fine… sleeping in… …I guess… 🙂 )
