Band camp is off to a great start! The students have worked SO hard and learned so much. It's going to be a hot one today! Please make sure your students are drinking water BEFORE rehearsal starts. Also sunscreen and appropriate clothing will be critical to have a great day!
EVSC & Green Brigade hot weather protocol: -We give the students water breaks every 5-15 minutes, especially on hot days like this. -We teach students to self-regulate and sit out when needed -We monitor students and limit outside rehearsal blocks to shorter intervals when the temperature is elevated. -We provide cold washclothes for students. -We have a Director of Operations as another set of eyes at rehearsals who is dedicated to monitoring students. -We continually monitor temperature and heat index. If the heat index is above 105 degrees, we will be inside (along with all other EVSC bands and sports teams).
We are blessed to have a great team of instructors and parents coordinate and work together to keep your students safe. Let's have a great day! ... See MoreSee Less
