Parents of seniors will meet Casie Clements outside the Springhill Drive entrance to the stadium promptly at 6:30pm on September 29th. Casie will coordinate family check-in and will distribute numbers to each family as you arrive.  Please follow numerical order and find your place in line.

The Lafayette Band Association will pay admission for two guests per senior to remain for the football game and enjoy the half-time performance by the Lafayette Band.  Families will be directed by Casie to enter the field where they will be joined by the senior students.  The announcements will begin at 7:00pm.  Each senior’s name will be announced and they will be presented with a certificate.  After the entire group is recognized on the field, families will be escorted to the rear of the stadium for photographs.  We will be honoring 41 seniors, so please be on time for this special event.

Please call or text Casie Clements (859-229-5118).  Thank you and Congratulations!

Arrive at Lafayette

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 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.
