I will be at school on Friday from 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM if anyone needs to pick up anything from the band room. I believe secretaries and custodial staff report on snow days, so you may be able to get in today or tomorrow during business hours if you need to. You'll need to ask at the office to be let in to the band room.


The band camp registration deadline has been extended until April 5. Please plan to turn in your form and deposit right  after spring break!
