Choir/Strings/Musical Updates for Nov 16-20

Choir/Strings/Musical Updates for Nov 16-20

Congratulations for making it through your first term back at Reynolds! We had a lot of great music making happening in our program and Mr. Davis and myself could not be more proud of all that you have accomplished – bravo! Please remember that COVID-19 numbers have gone up significantly in the past few weeks and we all need to be reminded of safety protocol and take care to be conscientious of all that we do at school. You have done well at following these rules but take some time to review and ensure that YOU are doing all that you can to protect yourself and those around you. Please prepare for safety protocol reminders in ALL classes as we enter Term 2. Sanitization, hand washing, wearing your masks at all times, staying home when sick and physical distancing are what keep everyone safe – SO DO YOUR PART and BE VIGILANT. 

 

Reminders for TERM 2:

  • Blue Band is now a learning group, so they are back in the band room for the first 5 weeks of term

  • Choir/Strings/Musical/Vocal Jazz rehearsals are all back in the THEATRE for the first 5 weeks

  • All outside timetable classes are exactly the same timings, so please be on time and prepared

  • Masks are required for ALL outside the timetable classes as well as in hallway areas

  • When you do not have class please go home if you are able

  • Dress warmly, it is cold out now and we have to have open windows and doors for ventilation

  • ANYONE IN DANCE will follow our rotation schedule sent out this week for Wednesday mornings
