COVID Mitigations

As per D128 policy, we are currently mask-recommended, so students have the option to wear a mask when not playing, a playing/singing mask, or no mask; a similar policy will apply to bell covers where students are given the option to use a cover or not at their discretion.  Puppy pads, supplied by LHS, should be used by all brass instruments when indoors.  Some rehearsals, particularly those for Marching Band Camp, will take place outdoors; when indoors, air filters and increased air exchance rate protocols are still in place.
