Welcome to Tiger Bands!
Thursday, August 6 camp schedule
Everyone on the main field at the stadium from 8-9:30 a.m. for music and fundamentals review.
THANKS FOR AN AWESOME CAMP WEEK/S!!
FESTUS MARCHING TIGERS UPDATED (7/24/20) CAMP PLANS
(I am truly sorry for the changes in the camp schedule and for any inconvenience it may cause. We are just trying to keep the environment as safe as possible for all of the band family.)
Be sure to have signed the activities waiver before coming to camp. Parents/guardians sign in through TylerSIS, go to the School Life dropdown tab and click e-Form. Look for the 2020 Summer Athletic/Activities Waiver. This is REQUIRED and must be turned in before participating.
Masks must be on at all times when not performing on instruments. Drumline and Guard should keep them on. This is especially true for inside. Outside if we are spread apart masks are not mandatory.
STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN WATER BOTTLES. (And no sharing, of course!)
We will not be distributing uniforms at this time.
Kids can park or be dropped off in the bus lot and walk around front of building to come in through the entrance nearest the band room. Each group must be totally gone from the room before another group can enter. No hanging out, etc. ☹
Everyone will need to take instruments home each day except sousaphones and drumline.
Band Fee – please hold off on paying anything at this time. We will still have t-shirts to pay for, but some of the other fees may be reduced. If students do not have the marching shoes, those will still need to be purchased. We will have more information on that at camp or once school starts. I will also try to keep everything updated on the band webpage. www.festusbands.org.
REVISED CAMP SCHEDULE:
Drumline - Monday-Wednesday, July 27-29 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (same as before)
Section leaders - 1:30-3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29 (Those who applied to be section leaders, please check your school email if you haven’t already seen an email from me.)

Thursday, August 6th – Instead of schedule listed above - *OPTION, possibly*… Everyone on main field or practice field for a fundamentals review and music run of the pieces we’ve worked on through the camp. 8-9:30 a.m. We will see how the rehearsals play out and determine whether or not we could do this safely.
Thursday night's event is cancelled. ☹
Again, my apologies for changing up the schedule. Thank you for your willingness to adapt through these ever changing times. The band will go on! 😊
