ARRIVAL PROCEDURES FOR ALL BAND REHEARSALS

Volunteers and Driving Students:  As noted above, This week Seniors will be painting their parking spots.  Therefore, it is important that you park in your SCHOOL-ASSIGNED PARKING SPOT!  If you do have an assigned parking spot in the lot or are a volunteer, YOU WILL NEED TO PARK IN THE POOL LOT OR THE ATHLETIC LOT and walk to the small commons entrance for wellness screening.  Please plan an extra 5 minutes to walk to the small commons entrance.

 

Drop-Off Students:   If you drive your student to rehearsal, plan to pull into the bus circle, like the previous drive-through wellness check line,  and drop off at the top of the circle.  Try to pull up in the circle so several students can unload at once.  Students will walk across the circle and proceed to Wellness Screening stations near the Small Commons Entrance.    Students should be screened and cleared with their daily sticker before entering the Small Commons Entrance.  

 

Rain Plan:  Students will arrive as stated above and wellness screening will occur INSIDE  in your respective rehearsal areas:

Guard - Large Commons
