Specialized (Small) Group Activity Groups

Please see here for the assigned groups (Group A & Group B)

Greetings to the San Ramon Valley High School Marching Wolves Ohana!

Our school district, Principal Liz Pagano and Assistant Principal Olivia Hanley have approved Specialized (Small) Group Activity(s) (SGA) this Fall!

Our first few SGA meetings will include introductions and drill instruction (with instruments – no playing) before Thanksgiving break. We must explain what socially distanced marching will look like this Fall. Therefore, we will be breaking down into two or more groups for instruction.

Here is what we will cover in our Fall Marching Training Sessions before the start of the season:

1. Formally welcome everyone in the Marching Program back to campus!
2. Establish/Review safety guidelines for COVID
3. Go over PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for individuals and instruments
4. Review/Re-teach marching moves & technique
5. Prepare for Football Season (January 8th – first home game)
6. Teach new drill for Pre-game (Group A = north of 50-yard line/Group B = south of the 50-yard line)
7. Start music rehearsals after receiving PPE materials for musicians and wind instruments.
8. Rehearse on the football field!

Please know that the number one goal is SAFETY FIRST! I have been working with the state/regional/county/district officials to follow CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines as we navigate this COVID pandemic. I (we) also care about everyone’s mental health and well-being.

We recognize that Covid-19 is a serious issue, and we want to make sure you and your family feel comfortable. In order to get an official number of who will be participating in socially distanced marching, please respond to the attached google form. Your participation in these SGAs are voluntary. These activities will count as community service points for the Spring class.

Please read the attached letter (Formal SGA Letter). There is an embedded WAIVER FORM that MUST be COMPLETED ONLINE PRIOR to coming to our activities. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CC me on that form.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at:

Thank you!
