Tonight’s Beginning Band Concert is postponed due to weather

Greetings 6th grade Students and Parents,

Due to the potential and extreme weather conditions for this evening (weather bulletin listed below), tonight’s Beginning Band/6th grade concert has been postponed. This is a joint decision between administration and Mr. Whitlock. The good news is that the makeup date is already on your band calendar. We will join the 7th and 8th graders for the Winter Concert on December 10.

While I know that the 6th students will be disappointed as they are very excited for this concert, it is the best decision based on the potential weather conditions tonight, and our priority must be to make sure students and parents are safe at school events.

Thank you for your understanding and we will see you on December 10!

Mr. Marc Whitlock
