We will be unable to supervise band students following the return to the cafeteria. WHS Policy states that MS students must be supervised by an adult attending WHS Football.


          Students will be notified by 2PM Friday ONLY if the performance WILL NOT take place. If no announcement is made, the performance is still on.  If it begins to rain later in the afternoon, BE AT WHS at 5:30! A decision will be made closer to performance time depending on the severity of the weather. DO NOT ASSUME there will not be a performance if it is raining. Students that do not attend on Friday will have it counted as a missed performance.


          Jeans and your Middle School Band T-Shirt. If you need a shirt, they are available for $10 from your Band Director. Make checks payable to MMS Bands or WMS Bands. Shirts will be on hand that evening to ensure everyone is in uniform. If it is chilly, please layer UNDER the shirt so we are all still “in uniform.”


          We still need more parent help to ensure the evening is successful. Please consider helping chaperone and supervise – many hands make for light work!
