Underclassmen Turn-in Day

UHS is holding its Underclassmen Turn-In Day Friday, May 22.

Mr. Palmer and Mr. Orban will be at the band room Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM to collect uniforms, music and instruments from any students who will NOT be in band next year.

Please only bring these items if you will not be returning.

All others may keep uniforms, tuxes, gowns, music, folders, and school instruments until we return in July. At that point we will re-fit and exchange uniforms of students who have grown and need another.

All students should have completed the Uniform Information Sheet in Google Classroom. The band has records of students who have checked out school instruments.

According to our travel agent Rita Slane, Disney will not be able to host band performances until the beginning of October 2020 at the earliest. Therefore, we are now looking into dates in the spring of 2021. 

Any travel would have to be approved by our board office.

We WILL be able to either reschedule or receive a refund, though at this point, we are not certain as to how long refunds will take.

Mr. Palmer will inquire about the possibility of including recent graduates on our trip. There are no guarantees that this will be permitted, but at the very least, we do know that anyone unable to travel with us will receive a refund.

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding, and we will continue to update as regularly as possible.

Guard equipment was distributed April 23 and 24, and guard coordinator Katie Smith has set up a Google Classroom to share updated guard information.

Returning guard members are not required to re-audition, and leadership positions will be determined at a later date.

Incoming freshmen and UHS Band members not currently in guard will be auditioned digitally.

Further audition information is posted in the Guard Google Classroom.

Summer Calendar

Until we hear differently, the UHS Band Summer Calendar published February 15 is unchanged. However, there is a strong possibility we will need to adjust it.
