Announcement About Wolf Pride Marching Band

July 20, 2020

Dear Reeds Spring Band Family, 

We hope this letter finds you enjoying your summer and staying healthy.  As we plan for the beginning of the school year, there are many decisions being made with the safety and well being of our students and families in mind. Please read the following information regarding our fall marching season:

After much discussion/deliberation with each other and other districts, the band directors and administration of Reeds Spring Schools have made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming competitive season as well as our home competition, the 2020 Ozark Mountain Marching Festival (OMMF). We will instead be converting to a “collegiate style” field show which we will perform for our community and sporting events. Please understand that we are not alone in this decision, as bands around the country have made the same decision to cancel seasons and festivals/events.  

It is our top priority to keep our students and their families safe and healthy, hence our decision.  Due to the lack of competitions available, we will be preparing music and drill that will be fun, entertaining, and educational for our community and sporting events.  New music will be distributed soon through multiple outlets.  Please stay tuned to the communication avenues listed at the end of this letter.

We understand and share the disappointment many of you are feeling, and we want to assure you that we will continue to strive for personal, musical, and organizational excellence.  Even though our fall season will look different, it will not change our hard work and determination to create lasting memories and musical successes.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of the band program.  As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email Mr. Garoutte and he will get back with you as soon as possible.

More detailed information about limited camps and summer events will be released later today or tomorrow via Remind, our band website, and social media channels.
