Panther Choir Newsletter | 03.16.20
As you know at this point, GCISD has cancelled on campus classes through March 28. As this situation is continuously evolving I have more questions than answers to share with you. Please continue to monitor GCISD communication channels for detailed information from the district. I assure you, everyone in GCISD is hard at work trying to determine the best ways to service our community at this time.
More than trying to provide an outstanding music education for our students, the CHHS Panther Choir is a social outlet and support system for our students and families. While this is remarkably difficult to maintain in our current situation, we will be working to create ways to connect and support our students and families during this time. While the immediate questions we are receiving have to do with events, concert dates, etc.. my larger concern is that we continue to be a support system for our singers. Please keep in contact as we work through what that looks like going forward and feel free to reach out to us for whatever support is needed.
- New York Trip -
GCISD has canceled all travel for the remainder of the school year; therefore, I have officially canceled our New York trip with US Integrity Tours. I ask for your patience as we determine what this means. USIT is working to secure refunds form vendors and through our long partnership with them I am confident that they will do everything that they can to return as much money to travelers as is possible. The policies in the travel industry are changing daily as government regulations change. It is going to take some time before we have answers. USIT is dealing with schools in the same situation all across the United States (and trying to get some groups home who were abroad last week). We will communicate information as soon as we have it.
- UIL Rehearsal Schedules -
Currently, everything is on hold. We will update you as we know more. Plan on being flexible over the next few weeks. The current directive from UIL states that contests should be rescheduled, but this will take some significant work as we balance all the music, academic, and athletic events. We are not going to attempt to start reworking our calendar until we have more information.
