If your instrument got wet in the flood, you need to get it out of the case and let it air dry. DO NOT PLAY THE INSTRUMENT AT ALL, as the water is contaminated and you risk getting sick.
When we get back to school, whenever that is, we will look at what we need to do to make sure your instrument is sanitized. You will probably need a new case. The good news is–if you are renting your instrument from the music store they will take care of replacing whatever needs replacing, as will the school if you have a school-owned instrument.
You are NOT in trouble if your instrument was flooded. It’s not your fault. Tell us so we can help you!
We have been told that the band hall did not flood, so we can at least be thankful for that.
Finally, if your family needs help cleaning your homes at this time, let us know!
