I hope this email finds you doing well. I want to thank all of you for your hard work this past week during our rehearsal and guard camps! It was so nice to see everyone throughout each day!
The FHSAA has decided to give the green light for football season to start. According to the FHSAA, games can start as early as September 4th, but school districts can also create their own schedules. I imagine our first game won't take place until the week of September 11th or the following week. There will be a coaches meeting on Monday which will include all of the coaches from Escambia, Santa Rosa, and eventually Okaloosa counties. They will be deciding on how to move forward. After that, the counties will be determining the guidelines for games, i.e. fan capacity, bands and cheerleader capacity, etc. Which will also help determine band concert guidelines. We are hoping to have all of these questions answered by the end of the week, but this is not a guarantee. Of course we will communicate everything we know as soon as we get word.
With this in mind, we have decided to cancel this week's rehearsal day so we can tweak things for the 25th and beyond. All pep bands and colorguard will meet 4pm-6pm on Tuesday the 25th and every Tuesday after that so far. We will still be utilizing the pep band format, however, we have worked things out to where all individual sections will be able to meet as a whole! We are hoping that we will soon be able to rehearse as a full band. Keep your fingers crossed!
The BPA is in need of help to clean the concession stand at the football field this Saturday in anticipation for games to begin. Please use the link below to sign up. All help is appreciated.
That is all for now. I hope you enjoy your final week off before school begins :-)
