Viper Band and Vision Family,

I hope you are all enjoying a restful summer thus far.  I’ve attached the first Summer Announcement Sheet to this email with LOTS of information regarding summer preparations and summer band.  Please take an opportunity to look through the Announcement Sheet in detail.

There will be three full-program meetings throughout the summer to provide updates on band program impact related to COVID-19.  I would ask that all parents and students attend these meetings to stay well-informed and to ask questions.  The first meeting is on Thursday, June 25 at 7:00 PM.  Zoom information is provided in the attached announcement sheet.

If you are an incoming student, please be sure you have filled out your directory form at​.  This will ensure that you continue to receive upcoming announcements and emails.

Students – print your music and START PLAYING YOUR INSTRUMENT!!  All information on how to get this done is in the announcement sheet.  

For the next few correspondences, you may receive duplicate emails.  We are currently working from multiple lists of contacts so that we can ensure getting information to all members.  Thank you for your patience as we finalize our distribution list for next year.

I look forward to seeing you all in person!!  Until then, I hope to see you on Zoom on June 25!

Go Vipers.
