Snaking the Halls on Fri 9/13

Snaking the Halls!

 

Next Friday, 9/13, members of the Marching Band will be snaking the halls of SHS!!

 

FAQ 1: Mr. Sekich has informed the Stevenson teaching staff that SHS students in the Marching Band (including Guard) can be dismissed at 1:35 PM to meet in the band room at 1:40. The procession through the hallways will begin at 1:50 and be done in plenty of time for dismissal.

FAQ 2: UAIS & Junior High School students are welcome to get an early dismissal (must be arranged by your parent/guardian) and head to SHS (transportation is on your own) to join in, arriving at SHS no later than 1:30 PM. For security reasons, enter through the Main Office only. There is no transportation back to your home school - but you may remain at SHS prior to the football game. Snaking the Halls is optional - you are encouraged and welcome to attend, but it is not required.

FAQ 3: Parents of Marching Band students are welcome to visit SHS to witness the Snaking of the Halls. Please enter through the Main Office only and sign in / get a visitor pass.

 

FYI: For Friday's home game - official call time is 5:30 PM in the Band Room, dressed and ready to go. The Band Boosters will be providing pizza shortly after 5 PM should you wish have dinner prior to the game. More details (what will be worn, etc) will be announced at Tuesday's rehearsal.

2019-20 Volunteer Background Checks

2019-20 Background Check process for Band volunteers:

1. Complete and submit a background check directly to the Band program. Place completed forms in an envelope and place them in the Blue Box (under the American Flag) in the SHS Band Room.

2. Your form will be inventoried (only) by a parent designated by Mr. Sekich. This list will be used for reference to ensure our volunteers have completed their annual background check.

3. The completed form is submitted to the UCS Human Resources department via Mr. Cucchi's office for processing.

4. If you do not hear something from Mr. Sekich or Mr. Cucchi in a roughly 2 week time period after you submit your form, you can safely assume you have been cleared to volunteer for all band activities.

5. Even if you submit a background check through another UCS building, or through another Stevenson HS volunteer activity, please submit a new background check with the band so Mr. Sekich can maintain the list of cleared volunteers.

6. UCS employees do not need to submit a background check. Please ensure however your name is placed on our volunteer list by presenting your UCS ID. Employees of other school districts and EduStaff, etc still need to submit a background check through UCS / the band.

7. A separate background check that is run by the Band Boosters will still be required for Away Camp volunteers each July prior to camp. Even if you completed this process earlier in 2019, you must submit a new background check to UCS, through the band, for the new school year.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep our Titans safe!
