Early January 2021 Marching Spartans Update

Good Evening and and Happy New Year!

For students and parents in a band class, I apologize that you are receiving this email again! I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable winter break and holiday season. The face masks and bell covers that LCPS purchased for band students have arrived! The first pickup date will be next Monday January 11th. Wind Instrumentalists: Please stop by the band exterior door near the football stadium or the door labeled B-4 which is on the side of the school next to the stadium parking lot. Please send Mr. Blanks an email communicating that you plan on picking up face masks on Monday so he can have them ready for you!

Regarding our upcoming spring season: To gauge numbers, we have a confirmation form that has to be filled out. Many thanks to those families who have filled this form out already! The form is linked below.  We have safety precautions in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.

More information about the safety guidelines can be found on our Band Booster website at:

The confirmation link for our spring marching season can be found here:

The deadline for this form is January 15th which is also the last day of the 2nd quarter. If you have any questions prior to filling out the form, please let me know.

Finally, for students who need volunteer hours for any school or non-school based groups: The music library in the band room needs volunteers to help sort and file some music. The first chance to do so is next Monday January 11th.

Parents and students, please let me know if you have any questions regarding any of the information in this email. I appreciate your support of the arts throughout this school year and I am looking forward to the number of events we have coming up!
