Final Details for Grand Nationals!

November 13, 2013

It's down to just ONE DAY until we head to Indianapolis!  Here's some additional information for you:

  1. Students should limit luggage to one small bag and one carry-on (like a back pack or tote) due to space limitations.  Please don't overpack!
  2. Bags need to have the green tags provided by Music Travel attached to luggage. These were passed out after practice on Monday.  Students who did not pick up a bag and tags can pick them up in the Band Room.
  3. Students can bring nicer clothes for the Friday night party.
  4. Luggage can be dropped off at the Band Room Thursday at the designated section label.  If parents are bringing luggage, they should have it there before noon.
  5. Students are welcome to bring snacks for the weekend; continental breakfast will provided by the Boosters daily.  Students with special dietary needs are welcome to bring their own food for breakfast and snacks.
  6. There will be vendors selling band-related clothing and other fun items at the stadium…so if students want to bring extra money, they may have an opportunity to purchase something while at the stadium.
  7. New departure time for Thursday:  Students will be fed following exams…will load buses at 1:00 pm…and depart at 1:30 pm!
Safety & Conduct
  1. Parents are not permitted in student rooms, including their own students' rooms, and students are not permitted to visit their parents' rooms. Chaperones are charged with keeping track of their assigned students and ensuring their safety.
  2. The Hyatt Hotel is requiring a signed Code of Conduct policy from each student which will be distributed on the ride to Indianapolis.  Please remind your students about appropriate behavior in a hotel!  
**Volunteer Opportunity!  We need parents traveling to Indianapolis on Thursday afternoon who are willing to help transport the food we are taking for breakfasts.  One or two mini vans or SUV's should be enough.  Contact Cindy Richie if you are able to help.  These parent volunteers need to be available to meet Cindy at MHS by 10:00 am on Thursday.

Thank you all for your patience and support during this final, crazy week before Grand Nationals!  Band families definitely understand how to be flexible!

See you all on Thursday!
