Dear Fairhope Band Family,
We have had to make the very difficult decision that we believe is in the best interest of our students’ safety and for the safety of their families. Effective immediately, ALL rehearsals for the remainder of the summer have been canceled. We have spoken with Mr. Cardwell and have his full support in this decision. This pains us more than any of you can imagine, and it hurts us for our students and our staff. Students are NOT allowed to rehearse in sections away from school, so please do not gather for a rehearsal. I know you all want to meet, but we can not do that at this time.
With the case numbers on the rise in Alabama, and specifically in Baldwin County, we believe this is the best decision that can be made. We want to give the students the best possible experience in the Fairhope Band, and part of that experience is keeping them safe at all times.
With regard the football season, we do know that we will only be participating in HOME games. Also, at this time there will be no travel during the marching season, which includes travel to away games, band jamboree (which has also been canceled), and competitions. we know this is difficult to hear, and it is difficult to say, but we do believe the safety of our students and their families is more important than anything else. This is a strange time in education, and we understand how disappointed our kids will be with this news and have been in the last few months.
Thank you for your continued support, your emails of support, and we look forward to seeing our students on the first day of school.
Wayne Fillingim and Meredyth Petersen
