PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not park in the last few bus lanes or in front of the garages. We all want to go home at the end of the night, but we still need to unload some equipment and unload the members from the buses. If cars are parked, or parents or waiting in cars, in the last few lanes the buses and trailers can't do what we need to do and we wind up making a long day even longer. Odds are we will put out cones, but there is never a guarantee they will stay there.
Battery - 10:00 AM to Noon - sectionals
Guard - 9:30 - Noon - Sectionals
Pit - day off
Hornline - day off
Activity Fee Due
The district requires an Activity Fee for all athletes and the marching band to cover transportation costs.
If you still need to submit your Activity Fee, please submit a check for $50 made out to KCSD. (NOT Friends of Music!)
Some of you may have enough in your student accounts to cover this. If you want to pay that way, please contact the FoM treasurer to request the transfer.
