Students and Parents,

Please note the following information, which should get us through the end of the school year!  Please remember that all band students will continue reporting to band 6th period, through the rest of the year (including the Final Exam).

Symphonic Band students should be reporting to their assigned 5th period lunch/study hall periods, as they were during the fall marching season.  No students should be taking a double lunch, or roaming the hallways!  If your assigned study hall is full, you may come to the auditorium after checking in there for attendance.
