Hebron Orchestra 2020: Into the Unknown!

Dear Hawks,This is Matthew Cautivar with the Hebron Orchestra.  If you’re new to the Hebron Orchestra I want to welcome you to the orchestra family, and if you’re returning I want to welcome you back!

As we head into the unknown, please help us adhere to the plan set forth by LISD:

We will begin classes tomorrow by meeting on Webex.  The Webex groups will be created via Canvas.  The orchestra class schedule is currently as follows:

1st Period – Concert Orchestra
2nd Period – Virtual Orchestra – Intermediate (Concert Orchestra Level)/Advanced (Symphonic and Chamber Orchestra Level)
3rd Period – Chamber Orchestra
4th Period – Symphonic Orchestra

Since there are two virtual classes scheduled during 2nd period, Intermediate will meet from 10:15am – 10:45am and Advanced will meet from 10:45 – 11:15.

I am currently available for office hours during Tutoring and PLC time.

Per district instructions, if you received a Webex Teams invite via email, please delete it.  This is a direct result of the Parent Observer Role. When LISD teachers began the Canvas integration with WebEx Teams, it notified students as well as parent observers. This communication was not intended to be sent to parents and parents cannot be a member of their child’s WebEx Team.


Thank you for your patience as we work out any scheduling discrepancies still remaining.  We will go over scheduling during class tomorrow and hopefully resolve them as soon as possible.


It is extremely important for us to take accurate attendance in accordance with the district guidelines.  Please have your student log in to their WebEx class according to their most recent schedule for tomorrow.  If they are unable to attend for any reason, please let me know as soon as possible.


I’ve always asked our students to view new challenges as new opportunities.  Whether we like it or not, we will have many new opportunities this year.  I’m excited for our orchestra to discover and explore new facets of music and find new ways to share music performances with you and the Hebron community.

2020 Orchestra Greeting
I’m looking forward to this year no matter what direction it takes us.  Thank you in advance for your patience as we communicate frequently as our year rolls out.  For your reference, orchestra emails will also be posted to our website at hebronorchestra.org.  This email list was newly generated from your current Skyward accounts, so please feel free to manage your email preferences again this year.


Please let me know if there’s anything I can help with, and I hope to see you all soon, online or in-person!
