Spring Tour Information

If you did not attend the meeting on Thursday, please make sure you turn in the Travel Consent and Insurance Form ASAP.  You can find the form on this blog under the Forms and Information tab.  You will need to get the form notarized and make a copy of your insurance cards before turning it in.

Cheryl Brady in the attendance office is a notary.  Otherwise, you can find notaries usually at your bank.

This paperwork has to be turned in to the administration no later than a week before the trip.  Please turn it in ASAP.  You're child cannot go on the trip without it.

A couple of other things we talked about last night:
  • The attendees at the meeting voted for a band tour t-shirt.  The extra cost will be $5.00
  • We went over the Disney policies, as well.  Basically, our children need to promise they will be on their best behavior, dressed appropriately, and not bring any illegal substances into the park.  They also cannot bring glass bottles in.  We are encouraging the students to bring water bottles, just make sure they are not glass.
  • We talked about proper concert attire:
    • Concert black will be worn for the performance.  This means:
    • Tuxes/Black skirts and tops
    • Ties with the tuxes
    • Black shoes (NOT Converse or other athletic shoes)
    • Black socks (regular socks or black nylons)
    • No sandals, flip  flops, sunglasses, or hats.
  • We want to look as professional as possible.
  • There are a handful of students who haven't paid anything on their tour fees.  Please get caught up on your fees.   On the day of departure, we will exclude any students who have nothing paid on their fees.
That's it for now!  To recap:
  • Turn in your paperwork.
  • Pay your fees.
