  4. Mr. Vignery and I will be gone on Wednesday with the LHS Marching Band for a competition. Students will not play this day in class and will have an alternate assignment to work on. Please talk to your students about your expectations for them as far as behavior goes when a sub is in the classroom. We will do the same.
  5. For some reason there have been more instances this year of students misplacing their instruments around the school. We have covered this at length in class. Our expectation is that they bring their instrument to the band room before school starts in the morning and put it in their locker, store it in the band room during the day, and then pick it up that afternoon before they leave school if they are taking it home for the evening. Please help us reinforce this at home by talking to your student about the importance of keeping track of such a valuable piece of equipment. Also, please ensure that your student’s name is on their instrument case in some way. This can be on a name tag, such as a luggage tag, or as simple as a piece of tape with their name on it across the case.
