VP Fair Parade has been cancelled for July 4, 2020.  We do want to let you know that all OTHS summer band activities will be as scheduled as we are allowed.  We are aware that changes and adjustments may need to be made as they come our way.  We appreciate everyone’s support and understanding through this time.

Resources to use during school closure:

Please be looking at emails and band announcements each day.  The Band Staff and Directors are working to stay the course during this time.  We will be using a variety of apps and programs.  If you do not have technology to support these as we begin to roll this out, please let us know or let a booster parent know.  In addition, we will begin using Blackboard for various curriculum and communication.
