The new rule for transporting band instruments on buses was just placed on the Yahoo Groups site. This is not MY rule, I'm just passing it along. Please don't let it discourage you from taking your instrument home to PRACTICE! Just be sure to put your instrument in the seat, not in the aisle, and work diplomatically with your bus driver to be sure you are allowed to continue bringing your instrument on the bus. The success of our band program depends on instruments going home EVERY DAY!
