For those who were travelling to Portland and Seattle, each of you needs to fill out a form in order to complete the insurance claim. You can find it on the side bar under “Handouts”. Please fill out the form and then email it myself or Mr. Wong. Once we have all the forms, they will be submitted to the travel agent. After the insurance company processes the claims, the school will prepare refund cheques for each student. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email.
Welcome to what is sure to be the most bizarre term 3 in Point Grey’s history. We will attempt some forms of music education in the near future, but for now the most important thing is that you and your family are well, and you continue to be well. I have enjoyed hearing from many of you over the last few days. If you are one of Mr. Fleming’s students, and you have not done so already, please take the time to respond to the email that was sent to you the other day in order to 1) confirm your email address/or provide a better email address to contact you with, and 2) let us know how you are doing. I’m sure Mr. Wong would enjoy hearing from choir and string students as well.
When we do start up, one of the ways we will be communicating is through Microsoft Teams, as you will be doing with all your other teachers. You will need to know your school email address and password. If you have forgotten your password, a teacher has the ability to reset that for you.
Many of you may have left your instruments and music at school. Sometime in the near future there will be an opportunity for you to retrieve items from your locker and the band room. You will be contacted by the school who will give you a date and time to come to the school. You should take your instrument and music home with you at that time. We won’t be allowing any percussion instruments to be taken home other than practice pads. Similarly double basses will remain at the school. Mr. Wong and I are deciding what to do about cellos. I know that many of you may be uncomfortable coming to the school at this time, I completely understand and we will do our best to work through that particular situation.
Lastly, if you have ordered a t-shirt or hoodie, they have been printed and (I think) have arrived at the school. When we have decided on a process for distribution we will let you know.
For now, stay healthy, chat with your friends, check your email, and even check the website for occasional updates.
This year’s senior trip to Portland and Seattle has been cancelled. We will be sending a notice home in the coming days regarding insurance information. We have been in contact with our travel agent, who is cancelling as many of the bookings as possible. For those bookings that were non-refundable, the travel agent will initiate an insurance claim on our behalf. The refund process will take time and we ask for your patience. Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
On Wednesday, please bring your instrument, music (including method book and pieces), and baggage to the auditorium by 8:45 am and wait patiently in the audience. Percussionists and double bass players, please be in the band room by 8:30 in order to pack up your gear. A reminder that you must have submitted the Pinnacle Pursuits Waiver Form and return it to either Mr. Fleming or Mr. Wong or you will not be able to participate in the outdoor activities. Second, if you have not completed a medical form please do so before we leave. Lastly, there is a link to a comprehensive packing list on the front page of this site under handouts.
