v  These times will depend on traffic and unforeseeable events, so we'll need to be flexible. Parents, please arrive for pick-up a few minutes early just in case, or keep in touch via cell phone.
v  We anticipate that the bus will be close to full. We are looking for a van or possibly two to haul instruments and maybe a few youth. Once everyone’s permission slip is turned in, we will know what additional transportation is necessary.
v  Please let Julie know a.s.a.p. if you may be able to volunteer (gas reimbursement available).
v  Each musician is very important to our performance. Since this is not technically a school-sponsored activity, their time off from school will need to be arranged on an individual basis. Please access the note on the second page of this link; hopefully it will help!

v  Congrats Box Elder School District students… you already have the day off!
