Welcome to the LHS Band Web Site!

 

Greetings Lafayette Band & Family Members,

Due to the continued impacts on our school division by the Covid-19 pandemic, I am now able to inform our band members with the following important updates:

 

  1. Football season will not occur this fall.  The VHSL has voted to move football season to a window between March and April.  When decisions are finally made as to if spectators can attend and if bands will be able to perform I’ll be able to share what the Marching Band can or can’t do at that time. 

 

  1. Marching Band Competition Season has been cancelled for this fall.  The current covid conditions will not allow for the large scale rehearsals needed to prepare a competition show.  In addition, the school division will not allow field trips at this time.  VBODA has cancelled the State Marching Band Assessment for the 20-21 school year.

 

  1. The Marching Band outdoor/indoor camp activities for this August have been cancelled.  However, I plan on offering a different experience for our band members during portions of August to help prepare our band for the start of the school year and welcome our newest members of the Ram Band.  Below is a tentative plan and schedule for our Virtual Band Camps:

 

  1. Virtual Camp for 10th – 12th Grade Band Members August 10-13 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  More information will be sent soon regarding the day and time you can attend.

  2. Virtual Camp for 9th Grade Band Members August 17-20 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  More information will be sent soon regarding the day and time you can attend.

 

I realize that for many of our band members some of this “news” will be met with bittersweet disappointment.  My goal as your band director is to continue doing all that I can to make your experience in the Lafayette Band the very best it can be.  I will be sending out additional information for our grade level virtual camps very soon.

 

 

 

Best regards!

 

Mr. H
