State and local policy has been updated to require a pre-participation physical for all students involved in marching band. There is also a form to be filled out and signed by a physician. The standard UIL FORM
The goal would be for this to be completed before the first day of full summer band, unless you choose to have it done earlier. Moving forward, we will require it every year, and the physical is good for one calendar year.
If a student has one for Athletics, they do not need a second one for band-just get a copy of the original to a band director please.
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY GOTTEN THE PHYSICAL:
Our students can get their physicals done at CHHS on May 24th in their indoor activity facility. They call it their PAC (ours is MAC). This is done by the GCISD Athletic Trainers. Cost is $20.
Here is a LINK to the Power Point presentation from our incoming (8th grade) parent meeting this evening.
Please do not hesitate to contact any of the band directors with questions. We will do our best to answer all questions in a timely manner.
Thanks to all who came out tonight. The students sounded GREAT!!
