– Instruments need to be cleaned, polished, and sticks taped prior to report time.
– Due to safety, limited space, and athletic department rules, adults with the band must have a chaperone or equipment badge. We will be unable to have as many volunteers as usual.
– IMPORTANT – Please do not park on either side of the fire lane at any time. This is the drive that loops around directly to the band room and to the front of the GAC entrance. Parents are asked to find a designated parking spot to drop off or pick up your son/daughter.
