Due to to a YPAS Band Concert scheduled for Thursday, September 29th at U of L's Comstock Concert Hall, the Marching Band WILL NOT perform at the home Football Game scheduled for that evening. Please understand that the YPAS events calendar is established in January before the new school year. The football schedule is not determined or released until much later in the spring semester. This is also an odd situation as this is a Thursday night football game, instead of the usual Friday night football game. The school administration is aware of the conflict.
We will rehearse on Tuesday, September 27th and WEDNESDAY, September 28th instead of our usual Thursday rehearsal due to the concert that evening. Both rehearsals will be held at our normal rehearsal hours. Color Guard will rehearse from 3::45-6:15 on Wednesday the 28th.
We will rehearse on Wednesday, October 5th and Thursday October 6th due to the JCPS "Fall Break". There is no school on Tuesday, October 4th.
The Makeup Date for the Car Wash Fundraiser has been moved to Saturday, September 10th at the same times and same location. Wendys: 4029 Poplar Level Rd. Louisville, KY 40213
AFTER SCHOOL REHEARSALS: These are required rehearsals. An unexcused absence from rehearsal will count as a zero and may result in dismissal from the marching band program. (Please see grading policy). Marching Band is A HALF CREDIT CLASS and students do receive academic grades through the first semester of the year.
