Hey Band Parents!


Welcome to an exciting and awesome year! Our students have been having great summer rehearsals, and our Board has been hard at work getting ready for all that is in store for this new school and band year ahead! In this email, we have listed our Board members and general info for the next couple events that you need to know about!


For those of you who I don’t already know, let me introduce myself. My name is Sharon Adcox. This is my second year as the President for the Band Boosters at Creekview. My students are Stephen (Senior Trombone) and Rachel (Freshman Flute.) It is very exciting times!


Now let me introduce you to the Creekview Band Booster Board and Committee Chairs for the 2021-2022 school year!


President – Sharon Adcox

1st VP Fundraising – Shannon Stigler

2nd VP Logistics – Ryan Geiger

Treasurer – Alecia Hill

Assistant Treasurer – Christina Luevano

Historian – STILL NEEDED

Secretary – Christen Packard

Banquet Coordinator– Marian Clark

Corporate Sponsorship – Tagni Mcrae

Volunteer Coordinator – Jessica Villafane


As a Booster Club, we will send out emails from time to time in addition to the Director’s weekly communication. We want to keep everyone informed. We will also have general meetings to review the plans and current status of the Booster Club throughout the year. In addition, we hope to have some parent events soon so we can all get to know each other better! If at any time you have a question, please feel free to contact me or any of the Board members.



· We need you parents to volunteer! The few of us parents on the Booster Board love helping our band program, but we can’t do it alone! Please consider helping at football games, marching competitions, or the variety of other events that occur throughout the year. If you are interested with helping on a committee, please contact me, our Volunteer Coordinator, or Mr. Denis.


o The District requires all volunteers to have a yearly background check on file. You will be able to complete this background check starting August 1st. Please go to this website for more information: https://www.cfbisd.edu/community/volunteer


· Away game meals: Each year we coordinate meals to be offered to our students before away football games since time is short between the end of the school day and leaving for the far away stadiums. We are currently working on getting all the information together for the couple away games we have this year. The first game will be Saturday, August 28th at 11am. We will be arranging a meal for purchase by our students since the game will be over the lunch hour. A sign up for ordering each game day meal will be sent out a week or two prior to the game, so please be observant of when those sign ups are sent out.


BAND PRACTICE INFORMATION (2021-22)

BAND PRACTICE

MARCHING BAND Schedule: 1 Evening & the rest mornings (per week)

Monday - 4:15pm – 8:00pm

Tuesday – 6:45am - 8:00am

Wednesday - 6:45am - 8:00am

Thursday - 6:45am - 8:00am

Friday -6:45am - 8:00am


TEMPERATURE / OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Both Band and Athletics utilize data from the WBGT index. It takes into account the current temperature plus the heat index for its calculation. We have protocol in place to protect our students through the suggested tiers of hot weather.

WHAT TO WEAR: It may be warm for a while still so for the time being, we encourage that all our kids come to practice with comfortable running shoes/ no high tops. Athletic shorts/ short sleeve T shirts, hats, sunglasses and their facemasks.

WHAT TO BRING:

· 1 Gallon of Water or a Large Water Jug (iced)

o No sharing of water, snacks or equipment

o Drink plenty of water THE DAY BEFORE REHEARSAL

· Flip Folder – with music / Labeled with students NAME/instrument

· Music – inside their flip folder

· Instrument – any additional equipment needed

RESTROOMS: Some rehearsals may have limited use of restrooms due as we’ll have our band staff working with / instructing students. Students should utilize the restrooms closes to the auditorium.

DROP OFF: We will have ALL Band students dropped off for band practice at the North CHSBAND practice lot – parents can then exit by driving through and around the back side of CHS. If a parent would like to stay in their cars and wait they can do so in the student lot or faculty lot as long as there is an open space. Please be patient in the lot if we have a traffic build up and please do NOT honk – as to not distract our students/ teachers. Students will need to have all their equipment/water with them at drop off and will NOT be entering the school unless they are approved by the directors based on instrument storage needs.

PICK UP: When we finish rehearsals – students will participate in a BAND DISMISSAL and then can move towards their designated pick up locations. Students are expected to adhere to social distancing BEFORE, DURING and AFTER each practice – this includes during WALKING to a car or band hall or set destination. Be flexible with students and plan to be available for your student so that they have time to travel or prepare for their next scheduled class or event.

WATER, WATER, WATER : most students have experienced a longer term indoors this past 6 months and will need to be conscious of dehydration. We are asking that all our students be conscious about drinking clear fluids the night before rehearsal, in the morning prior to attending and throughout the band practice in order to avoid dehydration. A small plastic bottle of water WILL NOT BE ENOUGH. Plan ahead so your student maintains healthy hydration!

REHEARSAL ATTENDANCE: this is SUCH an important piece for us. Students/ families have selected a choice of enrollment (Traditional on-campus / remote learning) Remote students have the great option of attending extracurricular classes live during the day and also attending our scheduled rehearsals before and afterschool. WE NEED TO KNOW that we can count on your student to be present at rehearsals or to identify if they will be Virtual Only. We will be at the mercy of your ATTENDANCE to learn and meet our daily goals through individuals, sections, ensemble and program.

REHEARSAL BREAKDOWN

· Meeting

· Stretch and Run (physical conditioning)

· Marching Fundamentals

· Sectionals (small groups) – Section Leader based

PRIVATE LESSONS – will be a very important support system for our students, we ask and hope to have 95% or more enrollment in our lessons program to help advance our students proficiency and level of enjoyment in band! We’ve got about 6 months of deficiency to overcome. Together (class room instruction, virtual assignments, lesson study and parental support / encouragement) we will be able to bring our kids back up to speed. Lessons are an expense, but more importantly an INVESTMENT in your child and a strong support from parents to further promote their skill, musicianship and enjoyment.

LESSON TEACHER CONTACT PAGE

*Scholarship assistance application available in the lessons contact page. This is due by Aug 21st - All requests will be reviewed by a scholarship committee and awarded on a need basis. LATE APPLICATIONS will not be accepted as funds will have been allocated. Awards available after Sep 8th. Questions? Email me – denisa@cfbisd.edu

What is Color Guard?

Color Guard is a performance activity that involves dancing and spinning flags, rifles, and sabres. During the fall season, color guard performs with the marching band at football games, pep rallies, and local/national competitions. During the winter/spring seasons, color guard performs indoors, separate from the band at competitions both local and nationally. Please watch this short video HERE to see what we do.

Who can join?

ANY student that will attend CHS for the 2020-2021 school year. Boys and girls both welcome! No experience is necessary, we will teach you how to do it! Most of our members show up with zero experience, and we have a great staff that can teach anyone how to do it.

Try-outs

We are currently accepting members for the 2020-2021 school year! Please fill out this form for more information about tryouts and color guard in general. Even if you’re not quite sure yet, signing up is a great way to learn more about it and see if it’s something you’d enjoy!

**Color Guard fulfills both your Fine Arts and P.E. credit requirements for high school.**

COVID UPDATE (8/15/21)

On Thursday, August 12, 2021, the Dallas County Health and Human Services Department issued an order requiring contact tracing and quarantine for close contacts in K-12 schools within Dallas County. This mandate was given as a result of the lack of pediatric ICU beds and an increase in cases of COVID. Within that mandate the Health Authority ordered protocols for exposure and positive cases which vary from the District’s previous email announcement to CFB staff on August 10. Please be reminded, COVID leave under the FFCRA has expired and is no longer available. Any absences during your isolation or quarantine period will have to be covered by your accrued leave. Please see the updated information below explaining the protocols CFB will use in instances of staff exposure:

For positive COVID cases:

    • Mandatory 10 day isolation. At day 10, if symptoms remain, isolation increases from 10 to 14 days (addition of 4 days to the ten for a total of 14).

For vaccinated individuals: Any exposure to COVID:

  • No Quarantine Required- Monitor for symptoms. Fully vaccinated individuals should get tested between day 3-5 post exposure.

For unvaccinated individuals: Any exposure to COVID:

  • Must quarantine for 14 days from last exposure.

As a reminder, international travel quarantines are still in effect, if you are unvaccinated you will be required to self-quarantine for 10 days or test on day 3 to 5 and only quarantine for 7 days. If you are vaccinated you will not need to quarantine, but recommended testing between days 3-5.
