School Cancelled on Wednesday - District Honor Band Schedule Altered

Good afternoon!

Hopefully by now you have all been notified by our school system about school being closed tomorrow as well?  It is anticipated that our weather conditions to worsen over the next 24 hours.  I hope that everyone is at home safe and warm!

I have just received notification from our district band chair, Tracy Wright, and he has released an alternate schedule for DHB.

This message is from Mr. Wright, "Several school systems' officials have already told directors there will be no travel on Thursday.  However, the meteorologists are calling for warmer temps on Thursday afternoon and definitely on Friday. Therefore, we are going to TENTATIVELY schedule DHB for FRIDAY, FEBRUARY, 14 and SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15. This should give all of you 48 hours to cancel hotel rooms for THURSDAY night and keep your rooms for Friday night. "

Below is the altered scheduled - Remember that it is tentative and contingent on warmer weather.
