We are aware of the HCDE school closure on August 21, 2017 due to the Solar Eclipse event. However, we have been informed that CSAS will still be open to us for after-school activities since the eclipse is anticipated to occur at 2:30pm.

Therefore, the executive decision has been made NOT to cancel our first rehearsal and parent meeting, and our attendance policies will be in effect. We are excited to see you all and get the season started!
