Please plan to eat dinner between 3:40 - 5:00 pm. We are on a very tight schedule, so please don't be late getting back to the school! You have a few options here - bring food from home and never leave the school, have food delivered by your parents to the school right after school, or leave and go to a fast food restaurant within a mile or two of the school with a dining room open (the mall is a good option).
School Buses - depart from and return to the band room. Please park in the parking spots in the parking lot when picking your student up. Do not park on Billie Watkins St. or in the bus loop for student safety.
Bring your full water jug to the game.

The game at Albertville that is now scheduled for Friday, October 1st has BEEN MOVED BACK to Thursday, October 2nd. The game is still in Albertville. I think this will be better for most people anyway since you can get an earlier start to your fall break after school finishes on Friday. This change was due to a lack of referees available on Friday in the Albertville area. Don't shoot the messenger!
Fall Break Game
We have a game during Fall Break on Friday, October 8th against Austin at Austin High School. As with years past, we will be taking a volunteer pep band to this game and will not be performing halftime. We ask that if you are in town to please attend the game!
We will be asking students about their commitment in the next couple of weeks so we can secure the correct number of school buses and plan for the game.
