Reminder: Tag Day - Friends & Family Campaign

This is a reminder that we are now "tagging" those people outside of our immediate Mason Band family to participate in our Friends & Family Campaign.   

The idea is to "tag" our closest friends and family members who live outside the Mason area, but who would like to participate in Tag Day by supporting our band program.  Please click this link for a customizable letter and/or email that you are encouraged to customize and have your student send to family and friends during the month of August--Tag "Month"!

Please help your kids brainstorm the names of family members and close friends who would appreciate being "tagged" by receiving one of the letters.  Maybe your list includes Mason Band alumni and/or their families...they would certainly appreciate still being considered a part of our band family and may love the opportunity to support the program!

As always, thank you so much for all you do to support our band program!


Reminder: New Process for Typical OTC Medication

We have made an important change for typical OTC medications (acetaminophen and ibuprofen) for our students.These two OTC medications will be provided centrally for any student for whom a completed DMS form is on file. Parents can send the DMS form electronically or drop off to a Band Aid since you no longer need to provide the actual medication. We encourage parents to submit a DMS for one or both of these medications if your student has needed these medications at home. Please help us take the best care of your students and consider what they may need to feel the best throughout the season.

Please Contact Lisa Oldham at with any questions or to submit a DMS for your student to have access to our centrally provided OTC medication. You will find the form on the Mason Bands Website here:
