What’s the status of the move to Willow Spring campus, band camp, instrument check-out, etc?

We will have band camp on the Willow Spring campus. The dates are in the attached handout for your convenience. This is the same info I handed out earlier this spring. There are no changes to dates or times.

I do not know for sure when I will be able to check out instruments for the summer. I should be able to check out instruments from the Willow Spring band room by July 1 based on the latest info from FVHS and WCPSS administrators. I’ll email again once I have 100% confirmation of a date and time for instrument check-out.

I am eager to make those instruments available so everyone, and especially our rookies, can get ready for marching band! Thank you for your patience as I have to go by what information I am given from WCPSS on this. I wish I could give you more specifics. I will update you once I am have more specifics.


When will we get more info about band camp?

I will email an info packet in early July that contains all sorts of details - information about the marching band show, instrument check-out, supplies needed for band camp and much more. I want to send out completed information all at once if possible so we don’t have bits of information spread out over multiple emails during the summer. I hope that approach will make it easier for you to keep track of what’s going on. For now, the most important thing is to clear the camp dates on your family calendar. I usually send all this out MUCH sooner but the uncertainty surrounding the specifics of the Willow Spring move has delayed both my planning and communication about marching band.

Everything IS going to to happen - we will get moved, we will have band camp and a great show, the band members will have an exciting and memorable 2019 season! The only thing I don’t know right now is exactly WHEN I can give you all the details about instruments and getting into the new facility. This is new territory for all of us at FVHS. Thank you for your patience!
