The band directors and administration met with all band members this afternoon to share the following information and provided all students with two documents. One is a letter addressing quarantine expectations and the other is an academic guide.
After further consideration, Lowndes County Schools has made the decision to quarantine the Georgia Bridgemen under the same guidance used to make this decision for the football program. All band activities have been postponed until practice resumes October 27th. The Georgia Bridgemen began practicing July 14th and have competed in two competitions and have been under the Friday Night Lights for all five football games. All protocols are being reviewed and adjusted to continue to protect our band members as they prepare for the remainder of the season. The Vikings look forward to seeing you in the Concrete Palace at Martin Stadium on October 30th as we take on the Tifton Blue Devils.
Lowndes County Schools continues working diligently to mitigate the spread of COVID 19 following stringent guidelines provided by the Department of Public Health. LCS actively conducts contact tracing, quarantining any exposures to stop the spread of COVID 19. Due to HIPPA laws, we cannot share COVID 19 specific test results. However, be assured Lowndes County Schools makes all decisions in the best interest of our students, faculty, staff and community.
If your student is already quarantined, please refer to the paperwork you were provided which indicates your child’s return to school date. Please note students who have not tested positive for COVID 19 will need to quarantine as outlined in the letter provided to the student today. The guidance from DPH states if your student has not tested positive for COVID 19, other members of the household are not required to quarantine. However, if your child were to develop symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider. If your child were to test positive, please complete the COVID 19 reporting form found on the LCS website under For Families, COVID Reporting.
We need lots of Parent Volunteers to help us host our own band competition, the 16th Annual BATTLE ON THE BORDER, on Saturday, October 17. Other bands will compete against each other and our Bridgemen will perform their entire show at the end of the night.
