National Anthem Performance-Cancelled

Due to the forecast for storms, and the limited indoor space in the event of lightning, we will be cancelling the Jr. High Band’s performance at the OTHS Varsity Football Game.  At this time, there are not plans to reschedule the performance.
The OTHS Band would like to invite Jr. High Students to the Metro-East Marching Classic, a marching band contest featuring the best bands from the Metro East, tomorrow, September 8th at OTHS.  Jr. High students were going to receive a wristband for free admission tonight, but if they’re interested in going, they can get one at the D90 Bands Pancake Breakfast tomorrow.  The pancake breakfast will be held at the First United Methodist Church from 8am-noon tomorrow.

D90 Band Rain Plan-Friday 9/7

Parents and Students,

Due to the forecast of rain and storms tomorrow (Friday 9/7), our plan is to make a call on the performance of the National Anthem at the OTHS Varsity Football game by 3pm tomorrow.  We will either go for the performance if the weather is clear, or cancel if the forecasts are accurate.
Due to the large number of students, we will not have an indoor plan B.  When the decision is made, we will publish it via email, the band website, and facebook.
