Gilbert Community School District is happy to welcome all students back to their classrooms. We are using appropriate COVID-19 mitigation strategies. We will be working closely with Story County and IA Dept. of Public Health as well as following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Our planning also provides options for on-line instruction, should the need arise due to health concerns related to COVID-19.COVID-19: Return to Learn, Communication & Remote Learning Resources
Any student can be a successful member of a highly successful band program at Gilbert, and be involved in any other activity, including athletics. The band will not conflict with other activities, and if a conflict arises, we will do everything within our power to work around it. It is our belief, as educators, that any student who has the interest in learning instrumental music should be allowed to participate to his or her ability in our group. Concert band, marching band, band contest, jazz band, and pep band are all valuable opportunities that are available to every Gilbert Musician.
