After extensive and cautious planning by the district’s team of teachers and administrators, morning music rehearsals at JFK and RCK elementary schools successfully resumed in November. Band and orchestra students previously met with their teachers in smaller groups to maintain social distancing.

“I am so proud of how our team strategically planned for this transition, and it is a blessing for our students to share music together again,” said Dr. Robert J. Wottawa II, the district’s director of art, ENL, music, and world languages.

“It’s wonderful to hear the beautiful sounds of our musicians attending in-person lessons again,” said JFK Principal Deborah Smith. “I may move the rehearsals to these locations from now on so I can hear the children from my office.”
