             In case of truly inclement weather (which is quite likely in all locations for some reason)  we follow the public school closings.  If there is an exception, we will try to reach all students by email and by telephone.  In Lenawee County, we will notify WLEN Radio (103.9) in Adrian about any projected closing. In Washtenaw County, we will notify WEMU (89.1) in Ypsilanti.

            If your student is unable to come to a rehearsal, we definitely like to hear about it in advance.  An email to either Mr. Doby or Ms. Johnson is best.  A phone call to Ms. Johnson  (734-905-7282) would always be welcome.

            The Winter Concert will take place in December at Milan Middle School in Milan.    The Spring Concert will take place in May at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts, Tecumseh.
