Marching Heat Alert and Sat Sep 16 rehearsal

Marching Families,

It’s going to be very hot today so I’m going to keep the kids off the field today – we will not be going to the stadium today due to the high heat.

On hot days we do modify the rehearsals and give frequent breaks and shorten practice time in the stadium.

Also, if you could remind students to bring a hat, sunscreen and a thermos of cold water everyday for rehearsals. Many student are coming up to the stadium unprepared for the heat.

Finally, please save Saturday September 16th open for a morning rehearsal …thanks!
