2021UHS Band Virtual Concert

The 2021 UHS Band Virtual Concert Video premiered on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:00 PM.

The Virtual Concert is the culmination of the entire 2020-21 school year's worth of distance, blended, and in-person learning, and features virtual performances from the Marching Band (both field show and parade music), Concert Band, Symphonic Winds, and Jazz Ensemble.

 

The video can be found HERE.

The Dominion Post ran a nice story on our Virtual Concert. As it is behind their pay wall, we have been granted permission to share it HERE.

2021-2022 WVSSAC Physical Forms

The West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission requires all West Virginia high school band students to have a current physical prior to participation in any band activites.

For us, that means students MUST have a physical dated after May 1, 2021 on file prior to participation in summer rehearsals.

Physicals completed after May 1, 2021 can be used for ALL SPORTS for the 2021-22 school year.

The Physical Form can be found HERE.

2021UHS Band Summer Calendar

The UPDATED 2021 UHS Band Summer Calendar is now posted. Because there will be no fair parade this year, parade marchers will not have to come to summer rehearsals.

 

ALL BAND MEMBERS WILL NEED TO COME TO THE PHOTO SHOOT ON THURSDAY, JULY 29 AT 1:00 PM, AND WILL NEED TO BE FITTED FOR UNIFORMS PRIOR TO PHOTO DAY.

2020-2021 Financial Statements

End-of-year financial statements were mailed the week of March 29.

For those new to the program, the typical Band Operating Fee (BOF) of $300 was reduced to $150 this year.

However, the band still had expenses, and we must begin preparing for what we hope is a return to normal activities this summer

and beyond.

Funds raised from the Lifetime Hunting and Fishing License Raffle and Fruit Sale go toward the BOF, so if you do not receive a statement from our treasurer, that means you DO NOT OWE.

If you are having financial difficulties, please let us know and we can offer assistance.

2020 Florida Trip Refund Information

The UHS Band will not be able to reschedule our Florida trip for the spring of 2021.

We were able to recover 90% of the money paid. However, there were some travel agency costs that occurred prior to our planned departure date that were not refunded to the boosters and therefore cannot be returned.

 

Most money will be refunded beginning the week of September 21, 2020.

 

We were able to recoup the money for hotels and park tickets. However, instead of a refund for our bus transportation, we were only able to receive a voucher for a future trip. We will eventually refund this money, but cannot do so until we actually take the trip and collect money from new band members. We are now hoping to reschedule our trip during the 2021-22 school year.

 

The breakdown of refunds is as follows:

Total Trip Cost:                                                                                                                          $960/person

Less Band Booster Subsidy:                                                                                                    $160/person

Final Cost:                                                                                                                                 $800/person

 

 

Checks Distributed starting 9/21/2020: (park ticket and hotel $)                                         $490/person

Checks Distributed (bus voucher $) when band travels at a future date TBD:                   $230/person

Total Refund:                                                                                                                             $720/person

 

Monies that were paid via student band accounts will be returned to band accounts.

Please inform Band Boosters Treasurer
Matt Turner of a forwarding address if you have recently moved or plan to move in the near future.
