THS Band Families-
We sincerely hope all families are safe and healthy at this time.
It is with disappointment that we are announcing the cancellation of Band Camp 2020 at Skyline Camp. Due to the guidelines provided by the State of Michigan in Executive Order 2020-110, overnight camps are prohibited until further notice and this prohibition will likely extend to our camp dates in August. That has led to the executive board's decision to not go to an away camp this year. There remains the possibility of a band camp to be held on the Trenton High School campus around the same time frame in August. We will be consulting with the School Board and Trenton HS administration and will announce information on this as soon as possible.
Many families have paid the $450 fee for 2020, which includes $300 for camp and $150 marching band participation fee. The executive board has decided to issue a refund of the camp fees only at this time, as we still need to use the participation fees for uniforms/costumes, music arrangement, marching drill arrangement, props and staff - should there be a marching band season in the fall of 2020. For example, if you have paid the full $450 for your student, you will be refunded $300; if only the first two installments were paid ($250), then you will receive a $100 refund. Checks will be mailed by the end of June.
In the event that Marching Season 2020 is cancelled or postponed, the executive board will meet to determine the refund process of the $150 participation fee.
If any family would like to discuss this cancellation further, please feel free to reply to this email or reach out to Mark Revesz, Booster President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
