Frequently Asked Questions

How does my child join the band?

Most of our students come from the middle school music programs. However, if your child is interested in joining our program, please contact our band directors; they will be happy to talk with you.  You can find more information here About Joining Band.

What if my child can’t attend a practice or rehearsal?

Our programs depend upon each student to fulfill his/her part, both on the field and off. We aren’t able to practice effectively if students are frequently absent. We understand that occasionally due to illness or other unforeseen events students may occasionally be absent. Please refrain from scheduling doctor’s appointments or other activities during practice or rehearsal times. We’ve attached our complete attendance policy as well as the absence form on our Parents & Students page.

My child has allergies and needs to take medication. How do I proceed?

If your child needs to self-administer medication, parents or guardians need to fill out the Form for Self-Medication located on our Parents & Students page. Once it is complete, please return it to one of the band directors.
