Re: HS directors at your MS
They have zero right to whine about numbers when they never come to create relationships with your kids. Getting kids to stay in band in HS is already hard enough with added responsibilities, time, and the fear of marching band. It is NOT your job to get kids to stay in band after 8th grade. I am a HS band director and it frustrates me to see this happen. Unless there is a serious issue with scheduling your HS directors should be making as many appearances a week as they can. If admin does not support this that can be an issue, but something that should be worked on. On a normal, not COVID year, HS directors should be seen often.
As for my situation my staff and I are going to middle schools and just taking additional safety protocols like we all are.
