MARCHING BAND REGISTRATION NEXT STEPS - STUDENT EXPERIENCE FEE #1 DUE JULY 1!

Important Upcoming Dates for Marching Band Registration:

Physicals must be current in Final Forms 

  • Physicals are considered ‘current’ 13 months post exam date. This allows 1 month extra given many insurances require 12 months minimum between appointments 
  • If your student had a physical in the last year, you can download the form from Final Forms and have their doctor fill it out based on their prior appointment.
  • New appointments will be needed for anyone who hasn’t had a physical in the last year. If you need to schedule quickly, many local clinics such as Dayton Children's Express Mason and CVS Minute Clinic offer same day appointments.
