Mechele Small Haggard (Sophia)
Please be at Napa Christian at 3:30-4:30pm to set up!

Mechele Small Haggard (Sophia)
Please stay behind after rehearsal ends at 7:15pm to tear down!

Snacks will be provided by Mechele Small Haggard
(45 Snacks for NVYS)
NVYS will provide the Sinfonia snack!

Thank you to our volunteers, we appreciate your help!


We do know there are extenuating circumstances that require you to be absent occasionally throughout the season. As soon as you know you will be absent please complete an Absence Request  on our website. (No need to email us since these requests get sent to the entire team instantly!) 


You NOW Need a Gate Code!


Due to concerns about theft, when you come to rehearsals you will now need to use Gate Code 2205.

Please write this down as you will need it througout the year.

Mask Mandate Modified and COVID Testing Prior to Rehearsal

We are aware that the State has lifted the indoor mask mandate and so have schools. For the time being, NVYS will keep our mask mandate in place and will revisit this policy after our March 13 concert.
Thank you to everyone for testing prior to rehearsal and staying home if you had symptoms or tested positive
. If you tested positive last week, we are asking you to provide a negative test result within 72 hours of our next rehearsal. 
We are not making testing mandatory, but we require students and staff who are experiencing Covid symptoms to stay home and test prior to the next rehearsal. 

Thank you so much for your commitment to NVYS and keeping our community safe and healthy.
