NO DRIVING ON THE BAND LOT

 

 As marching band practices move to the marching field outside remember to always drop off and pick up your student at the student lot.  With over 200 students and staff we want to minimize traffic on the band field. The entrance to the student lot is the first right after turning onto Spring Hill Drive.

2015-2016 MEDICAL FORMS

DOWNLOAD LBA MEDICAL FORM

It is mandatory that every parent complete and turn in a LBA Medical form for each student participating in Marching Band. Turn in the medical form this Thursday or during pick-up at the upcoming mini-camp on May 8-9 or at the May 11 LBA Parent Meeting. You can also mail the form to: Mike Booth 1105 Foleys Retreat 40514.

The medical form provides important contact and basic medical history information to the Chaperone First Aid team in case your child needs first-aid during band camp, a daily practice or a trip.

Since the LBA does not permit students to self-medicate over-the-counter (OTC) medications (ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.). You are encouraged to complete and have a physician sign the OTC authorized medications part of the medical form. Per FCPS policy, we cannot give your child even an antacid without written approval signed by a physician on file. We cannot take verbal permissions over the phone.

For right now, we must have the basic medical information for every student completed and turned in. If, at later date, you get your physician to sign the OTC authorization part of the form you can submit a revised form at that time.

 

STUDENT ANNUAL PHYSICAL AND KHSAA FORM

 DOWNLOAD KHSAA FORM

Marching band is not for wimps! Temperatures will get extremely hot in the summer and really cold in the fall – remember State Championships at EKU last fall?  The sometimes extreme weather along with physicality of a marching show can put a lot of stress on the body and we want to make sure everyone is healthy and ready to go starting day one of band camp.

Since physician calendars tend to fill up quickly make an appointment now with your child’s physician to get a yearly physical. Have them complete and sign the KHSAA Physical Form and send it with you student on the first day of band camp. It is a good idea to take a blank KSHAA Form with you since not all physicians keep blank forms on file.

If your student had a physical last year after July just make arrangements for a new physical as soon as possible at the one year date.
