Over the last 11 weeks, the district administration and band staff have been in close
communication regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and possible ramifications on our 2020 Grandview Heights Marching Band summer schedule. We have diligently followed the daily updates from Governor DeWine, Dr. Amy Acton, and Franklin County Board of Health to ensure all guidelines are met.

In regards to the dates on the calendar - Pre-Camp July 20-24; Band Camp July 26-31; Falco Park Concert August 9. Please keep them on your calendar for now.

I very much look forward to beginning a new season and new academic year with our wonderful students and families. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via email.
