Message from Directors 6/15/20 (also in your email inbox):
Hello, Band Students and Parents!
We hope this message finds you well, especially after this past couple of beautiful summer days. Today’s email is a simple update to answer a couple of frequently asked questions.
Please keep the days and times booked for band camps in June and July on your calendars!
With the guidance of the IHSA and the NFHS, we are working with the LHS Admin on a way to rehearse in sections with staff members and in some cases chaperones to ensure meaningful and worthwhile camp meetings (in sub-sections and small groups) that can be hosted within the confines of new regulations.
Stay tuned, but again, please keep your camp dates on the calendar (June 29-Jul 1, Jul 27-Aug 2).
Also, student sectionals will remain “virtual” until further notice. We have moved all student sectionals to our “Google Meets” platform within the Lemont HS domain. What this means is that each sectional will be opened by a director, and they will have a presence at each sectional. Student leadership is undergoing weekly training to learn to manage through this new type of interaction. Thanks for your support as these students leaders learn to run a meeting and manage personalities – and thanks to our students for rising to the occasion and maintaining professionalism in their sectionals!
Lastly, please reach out if you need any help or have any questions. We’re managing, but it’s all looking a little different. As we mentioned about a month ago: we’ll persevere!!
-Mr. Doherty and Mr. Nommensen
