This email was sent to Maine East Band Students and Families on July 20.
As we noted in our July 1 communication with you, the State of Illinois released guidance for schools to return to in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year. Based on this guidance, as well as health and safety guidelines established by the Illinois High School Association (IHSA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and our state/national music education organizations, we are preparing for voluntary Band Camp to begin August 3.
It is extremely important that students and parents/guardians read the details of the District 207 Band Camp – Phase 4 Reopening Guidelines for Students/Parents – these are the guidelines we will use during Band Camp and all students must know and follow these procedures. In addition all participants must have a completed waiver in order to participate: Maine Township District 207 Waiver & Release – please complete and bring this to the first day of camp.
Camp will run August 3-7 and 10-11. Details will be emailed and posted on the Band website HERE here regarding times, schedules and groupings to accommodate social distancing and safety guidelines.
