Brien McMahon High School Winter Percussion and Winter Guard need your help! 


Norwalk Public Schools is planning on ending BMHS Winter Percussion and Winter Guard season’s due to the recent Coronavirus breakout. They potentially may cancel the musical, spring concert, and the Jazz Band’s season as well. This would put the music department as a whole in debt. Students put their hearts into these programs only to have it be canceled. This is especially tough for seniors as they put 4 years of hard work into the activity they love and unfortunately can’t finish it. 


The dangers of the Coronavirus has been all over the news. So it is perfectly rational to be concerned about the spread of this virus. However, it should just simply mean to take a little extra caution. Perhaps postpone practices or maybe cancel them for this week until further notice. They could even have a conversation with students about ways to prevent getting this disease which is something yet to be done. Nobody knows for sure what will happen as a result of the Coronavirus. Therefore, it is unreasonable to cancel these programs seasons this far in the development. 


Several of my fellow classmates are very disappointed and furious about Norwalk Public Schools canceling our season. We ask that the school district rethink its decision to do this. The student has given up their entire Saturdays as well as time after school to commit themselves to excellence. Students have made life-long friends through these programs and this will be the last chance for some to perform together. Please sign this petition to have our voices heard. Save the Winter Percussion/Guard seasons!
