2020-2021 Band Deposit can be paid here.

The 2020-2021 Marching Band fees have not yet been finalized.  However, they will not be higher than last season, and will very likely be lower, depending on how the COVID-19 crisis unfolds in Cobb County.

The 2019 fees are available through this link. Fundraising opportunities are available to reduce your fees by at least $160. Fees do not include travel costs associated with the special competitions or events. Payment is due by Registration on the last day of Pre-Camp in July, and can be made by cash, check (made payable to LBBA) or credit card. Core fees are non-refundable after the first week of school.

Financial Assistance is available for those experiencing financial hardships.
