Will I miss Sports or Musical Practice?
These dates were picked to minimize the impact on both! You will miss practices on March 13 and 14. March 13 is a half day of school. We should be back (pending flights and weather) for practices on March 16.
How much school will I miss?
March 13 is a half day and March 16 is a normal day.
How many fundraising opportunities will there be?
There will be at least one account fundraiser and hopefully more!
Will we definitely go?
We can only do the trip if a viable performance group signs up. If not, the trip will not occur.

Sign Up Process
The trip will be open to 48 MS/HS Band students enrolled in concert band classes. The paperwork will go live on the web on September 10, 2019. The first 30 students to submit paperwork and deposits beginning on September 11 will go. The remaining 18 spots will be filled out based on a system of instrument need and seniority by any students who submit completed paperwork and deposits by 2:00 pm on September 16. Paperwork and Deposits will only be taken together. If not returned together they will be returned and you will not have a spot. This is the process we have used for the past spring tours.
