Lamar Band Update

Lamar Leadership – This morning Mr. Hagman hosted faculty meetings on the Zoom app. It was interesting to see all the teachers from their homes. I felt that it is important for you to know that the administrators are working around the clock, or at least late into the evenings, to find the answers to all the questions we all have. The district is working on a variety of plans for instruction. The main focus right now is that we are taking care of the Lamar family. Making sure students get meals and making sure that if needed, all students would have a computer and internet access. As I find out more information, I will share it in email and the band app. As for the Lamar Band, I would like the leadership students to reach out to your sections to see if they have what they need. The directors helped students get instruments on Tuesday for those that didn’t have anything at home. As of now, there are no assignments for band. We just want people to enjoy music and play their instruments.

Communication – We will continue to communicate with Remind and the Band App. Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will also be good sources of info. I always retweet important info from AISD, Lamar, City of Arlington, and Tarrant County on my Lamar Viking twitter account.

 

Band App – We are encouraging students and parents to join the Band App https://band.us/n/abaa28ofT5zcr This is a great way for us to communicate as a supplement to the Remind app. Keep notifications on for both app services.
