*Our departure time for state contest is historically early. Students need to bring breakfast/snacks with them. We will stop at a rest stop along the way.
*Due to the extreme rise in charter bus travel, we will be taking school buses. This was a very tough decision to make, but it is necessary in order to keep band fees down. If we took charter buses, we would be looking at a significant increase in fees.
