COVID-19 Updates



Hello, Firebird Band students and families! 

As you know, this year is starting off a bit different than past years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and mandated social distancing. We want you to know that you can continue to count on the Chaparral Band Boosters to be a source of support and information for you as we navigate this unprecedented time. It is our hope that things will continue to improve and we will be able to SAFELY see each other more and more in the near future!

The information you will find in our website’s “WELCOME BACK” section will continue to reflect how things normally run when school is in session as usual. The start of this school year (until at least September 8, 2020) will be according to the Scottsdale Unified School District’s Enhanced Distance Learning program or the Scottsdale Online, so schedules for band classes, practices, and activities will be modified accordingly. It is of utmost importance that you stay connected to updates from SUSD, Chaparral High School, your teachers, and the Band Boosters. Please use the links below to be sure you are receiving booster emails and text messages and viewing the most up-to-date calendar:

Band Calendar

Some of the activities that our band normally participates in (games, competitions, etc,) have already been cancelled for the year, but we do know that there will be some alternate activities that the band may be able to participate in (virtual band days, etc.) Schedules for both practices and activities are likely to be changing week by week. PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK THIS WEBSITE AND READ THE BOOSTER BLAST WEEKLY SO YOU ARE INFORMED AS THINGS EVOLVE.

Because of the required adjustments to the Marching Band season’s scheduled activities, the Marching Band Booster Fees for this season have been REDUCED. (Please refer to the PAY FEES page and click on “WHAT IS THE MARCHING BAND BOOSTER FEE” for information on what the fees are used for.) Please make your payment by September 11, 2020 to take advantage of the early bird discount!


Wishing you all a happy, safe, and HEALTHY 2020-2021 school year!

The Chaparral Firebird Band Booster Board
