Important Latin Day Tip!

When you arrive at Latin Day, an employee from Holiday Hill will board the bus to collect the small tags that hang from the wrist bands. It is very important that you only give the number of tags to equal the number of attendees. If you have extra wristbands (because of absent students), please do not give the tags or bands to the Holiday Hill attendant. You can turn in any unused bands at the Information Table! This little detail will make sure that Latin Day is only charged for the number of people who actually attend. Thanks so much for your help with this!
