In response to current events surrounding COVID-19, parents and students should be reminded of important instrument hygiene procedures to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. These guidelines were gone over with students in class. ALL INSTRUMENTS MUST GO HOME FRIDAY to be cleaned using the guidelines below.

Instrument Hygiene Guidelines & Procedures

Per the orders of Governor DeWine, BBHCSD will be closed for the next three weeks starting Monday, March 16th at 3:30pm. Teachers will be meeting on Monday to plan digital/online activities for students to complete at home to keep the learning process going. We will have more information posted about this next week, but students can expect learning activities to include both playing and non-playing assignments. Music will also be posted on the band website for students that share folders. ALL INSTRUMENTS & MUSIC MUST GO HOME FRIDAY. Percussionists that need to check out a practice pad or bell kit will have the opportunity to do so in class Friday. If you need to make special arrangements for large instruments such as tuba and baritone saxophone, please contact Mr. Rex. We will address shared school instrument concerns with these students in class Friday.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. It is important that we all STAY POSITIVE AND FLEXIBLE as this is new territory for us all. Be well!
