BAND MEMBERS
— It is very important to check and double-check the items in your Red Bag prior to every performance! Make certain all required items are present, clean. This is important information to remember prior to every football game and competition!

Parents and Students — Carefully review these instructions:

  • Bring money for gloves if needed. $8

  • Clean and polish shoes

  • Have your band camp shirt to wear under your uniform.

  • Wear long black socks – plain, no stripes! (It’s good just to keep an extra pair of socks in your bag)

  • Bring the dark gym shorts

  • If there is a problem with your uniform, see a member of the uniform team.

  • We always appear in public dressed in full uniform unless Mr. Smith or Mr. Bishop have informed the students otherwise.

Hair should not touch the collar when dressed in uniform, therefore, students with longer hair should bring items to secure their hair in a ponytail or purchase a wig cap. 

Have class – YOU are the “PRIDE OF THE BLUEGRASS”! Always support other performing groups! Refuse to say anything negative, no matter what might be said to you.

Medications for the KMEA Quarterfinals

 

If your child needs to take prescription or over-the-counter medication that we do not already have physician’s signature for during the day on Saturday, you will need to complete and turn in the FCPS “Medication Authorization Form” found here:  https://www.fcps.net/cms/lib/KY01807169/Centricity/Domain/2295/meds_ok.pdf   

On Saturday morning, turn in the completed form along with the medication needed for that day only in its original container to any chaperone at the blue building next to the practice field.

Please note that over-the-counter medications must be accompanied by a physician’s signature on the FCPS form noted above.  If a physician has already signed the LBA Medical Form then you do are not required to submit an additional form for OTC medications you initiated on the LBA Form.

If you have any questions you may contact Sherri McPherson (lafayettechaperone@gmail.com).

Final Run Through Events

 

FINAL RUN-THROUGH WITH ENCOURAGEMENT SIGNS
All parents, families, and friends are invited to the Final Run-Through next Friday (26th) at 5:45pm. An annual tradition, we will line the perimeter of the practice lot (or football field) during the final run-through holding signs and posters of encouragement–make them as fancy or simple as you like! Let’s show the students how proud we are of all they have accomplished this year!

PRAYER AROUND THE FLAG POLE
The annual Prayer-Around-the-Flag-Pole will be next Friday (26th) at 5:15pm.  Parents and family members are invited to pray for each band member, staff, section, and circumstance.  Pat Kirkhope will lead the prayer this year.  We will meet at the flagpole in front of the SCAPA building and will finish in time to watch the final-run at practice.  This activity is not sanctioned by the LBA and is optional.
