    A note from the music teacher, Mrs. Fair:

    Unlike in years past and because of copyright laws, there will be no videotaping or photography during the 4th grade play, Annie. You may not use your camera or phone at any time during the play to take pictures or video. Also, the students may not be with their class during the performance. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
