Packet & Instrument Pick up

Posted by on Apr 1, 2020 in Curriculum & Assessment, General Information, Important Dates | Comments Off on Packet & Instrument Pick up

This message is only for those who have contacted the school and requested a paper packet. If you did not request a packet, do not show up looking for one tomorrow. We will not be able to assemble one for you.

Packet pick up will be tomorrow, Thursday, April 2.  Students with the last name beginning with the letters A-L can pick up packets from 1 pm to 4 pm. Students with the last name beginning with letters M-Z can pick up packets from 4 pm to 7 pm. 

Pick up service will be drive through only. Please drive to the bus ramp, crack your window and give us the name and grade level of the student you are picking up for. A sign with the student name on the dashboard would be even better. We will give you the packet and you will promptly leave. The packet you will be receiving has assignments for the month of April. Due to the governor’s order today, this is the only day packets will be available for pick up. For those who requested packet drop off, that will be scheduled as soon as possible. 

If you need to get a band instrument when you pick up your packet, please email Ms. Rohde tonight so she can have your instrument ready for your student tomorrow. Your student’s instrument will be delivered to your car just the same as the packet. We request that no one exit their car while on campus. Thank you in advance for your patience.
