New Schedule for Away Game vs. Pinson Friday, 9/9/11

Dear marching band and auxiliary parents and students:

Call time for marching band and auxiliary members has changed. This Friday, 9/9/11, students are dismissed at the 3:00 bell. Roll call in the band room is at 4:30 with departure time at or before 5:00 pm. Band van loading will take place in the afternoon prior to roll call.

Please be sure to allow your student to eat before returning to the band room for 4:30 roll call. There will not be another chance to eat until 3rd quarter snack during the game.

Some students have expressed concerns about having inadequate time and/or transportation to leave school at 3:00 dismissal and to return by 4:30. For those students, an after-school, "extended day" period will be offered in the band room from 3:00 pm until departure time. This period will include a snack and will likely include some extra rehearsal time. A parental permission form will be sent home Thursday with those students needing to remain at the band room. Only those students with signed permission forms will be permitted to remain, and any students staying must stay for the entire period. A donation of $5.00 per student, made payable to the Moody Band Boosters, is appreciated to help defray the cost of the pre-trip snack.
