    Band Students who are enrolled in Smartmusic or are completing packets do not need to enroll in Google Classroom. If you are using google classroom for distance learning please join the classes as soon as possible so students have time to complete the assignments due Arpil 1st.


     I will be available for questions every weekday from 8am-5pm via email. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!


    Any student who might have an issue having access to the above technology will be accommodated with appropriate alternate assignments due on a weekly basis via google classroom or mail.

    School-owned or rental instruments must be returned before the school year is over if we do not get the opportunity to meet in person this school year. More information on that procedure will be posted on this site.

    Please check in with this site for more updates.
