We want to provide you with information and options to consider for purchasing hearing protection for your band student. While participation in school band allows students to reap many benefits, there may sometimes be a risk of exposure to sounds loud enough to damage hearing. It is important to consider purchasing hearing protection for your student to wear in these situations... (to continue reading, please click on the file "Hearing Protection letter AVHS 2016" from the files at the bottom of the page)
Band Boosters will offer 2 options for musician hearing protection: custom Hocks Noise Braker earplugs & stock Etymotic ER20-XS earplugs. (more information on both in the files at the bottom of the page)
Letter/forms will be distributed during the first week of school. Order forms are due Friday, September 16. Audiologists and staff from Associated Hearing of St. Paul will be in the AVHS Band room on Tuesday, September 27 from 8:45 - 11:00am to mold custom earplugs.
This offer is available to students, families, friends and staff.
