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.  $8.00 

·  Have your black dry fit shirt to wear under your uniform.

·  Wear long black socks – plain with no color on the heels or up the sides (It’s good just to keep an extra pair of socks in your bag)

·  Bring black shorts.

·  Bring black shoes.

·  Students must wear hair in a slicked bun OR if needed, make arrangements for a haircut!

·  DEODORANT – this is necessary!!

·  Wipes for your red bag

·  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.

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 Ryle Contest

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).
