Snow Day Complicates School Schedule

Posted by Mr. H on Feb 21, 2005 - 04:35 AM  •  Filed under: important
Due to the snowday on Monday, February 21, the High School Block Schedule will be changed dramatically. This will result in VERY FEW rehearsals for the Symphonic Band in the next two weeks and means that we MUST make the most of EVERY rehearsal we do have.

While I don't think this is cut in stone yet, from my discussions with Mr. Lusher, this is what will happen:

2/22: Monday Schedule

2/23: Wednesday Schedule

2/24: Thursday Schedule

3/1: Tuesday Schedule

3/2: Wednesday Schedule

3/3: Thursday Schedule

3/4: Friday Schedule

(Jazz Band will meet as normally scheduled - T, W, Th - unless specified otherwise in rehearsal)

Bay City Public Schools Closing for three weeks.

Posted by Mr. H on Dec 15, 2004 - 06:00 PM  •  Filed under: important
As most of you know, the Bay City Public Schools has added one week to the usual two week winter break this year. This was done in an effort to save money through a reduction in transportation, heating, custodial and other costs associated with the normal operation of the school district during the months of December and January.

What you may not know and may not be accustomed to, is that all the buildings within the Bay City Public Schools will be completely closed with absolutely no access during this break. It is very important that students (and staff) remove all materials that they will need (e.g. instruments, homework, clothing, etc.). The buildings will be locked securely and unaccessible to the public during these three weeks.
