Family Payments Matter for Every Student

 

As we begin planning for the 2017-18 band year, all LBA families need to understand that the family payments form the backbone of the band budget and all activities.  Fundraising and Bingo are important but they cannot replace the funds provided by the family payments. 

It is important that every family be responsible and meet its financial obligations.  The lack of family payments has resulted in difficult situations for our musical instructors – we are not able to make timely payments and several have left to find employment elsewhere.  This has a negative impact on the musical instruction provided by Lafayette and our students’ growth as musicians.

The unpaid expenses from this year will carry-forward into the budget for the 2017-18 year.  Family Payments matter!  For our students to have the best possible band and musical experience at Lafayette, families must meet their basic financial obligation.  If needed, please contact Mr. Smith at 859-396-3311 or chuck.smith@fayette.kyschools.us for a confidential conversation about a payment arrangement – he is more than willing to work with you and your circumstances.

Let’s finish this year strong – both musically and financially!
