Good Evening B. Garza Katz Band Parents and Students!

The band directors are hoping that all of you are well and safe during this time. This post is to serve as an announcement about our instrument pick up times for students tomorrow at B. Garza. Parents, tomorrow your children will be able to pick up their instruments if they were left at the band hall. Students, you need to let the directors know using Google Classroom what locker your instrument is in so we can put it aside for you. Students, you will not be able to go inside the band hall.

Only parents or guardians can get down and we will hand them your instrument. They will need to be wearing a mask or face covering in order to get down. We must maintain social distancing practices and the safety of the faculty and parents as well. More info is on the flyer below!
