Do you have the BAND app yet?

If you have not had an opportunity to download the BAND app please do so. Please click https://band.us/n/aead56K2I98aY and band with us. On the app, you can see posts from directors and parents, ask questions, and share info and pictures. This will be where marching band notifications will happen for parents (I.E. When are the kids getting home from an away game? Volunteer opportunities? How do I access charms?). Photos from Band Camp have been posted here.

DragonFly Max- Urgent task for completion please!

In order to participate in Marching Band and other high school sports, your student must have a physical and submit health information in DragonFly Max. There are still some students whose accounts are not completely up to date. Maybe your physical was valid through band camp but expires during the fall, or maybe you have not completed all the required forms on the check list. If you have not checked your account, please do so. Questions? Email Jeff Robinson at jeffr@merit-construction.com


Repeat information:

The approved GHSA physical form can be downloaded here:

https://www.ghsa.net/sites/default/files/documents/forms/Preparticipation_Physical_History_and_Evaluation_-_Current_Fillable.pdf

Print a copy and take it with you to your child's physical. Your physician will fill it out and sign it.

After your student's physical is complete, scan the document and submit it to DragonFly.

See link below for information on setting up your DragonFly account:

If you already have a dragonfly account, you can submit your updated physical form.
