Meet:  7:45 a.m. Thursday morning May 17th.  Meet in band hall for rehearsal.  We will then load luggage and instruments on buses.


Return:  Tuesday evening May 22nd, approximately 8:30 p.m.


Meals:  Check the detailed itinerary for meals you will need to pay for.  You will receive some meal money or meal vouchers and the hotel has a breakfast included with our stay.


Money:  You will need spending money for souvenirs, personal items, etc.  How much is up to you, just don’t be careless with money. You have to have a valid driver’s license to cash traveler’s checks.  We will give you a student ID badge with a lanyard to wear around your neck and it will be a good idea to wear that badge at all times.  Purses and backpacks will be searched at all parks.


Medications:  You do not have permission to carry medications with you during a school related trip.  A designated adult will administrate medications during the trip.  All bottles, boxes or packets need to be labeled with your name using a permanent marker.  Any and all medications need to be placed into a zip lock bag.  Please include any special instructions that would be useful for the administrating adult.  All medications must be turned into the band office Wednesday morning.


Uniforms & Instruments:  You will need to pack up your uniform in a garment bag, clean white band shoes and socks.  Your instrument must have a name tag on it as well as your luggage.  Bring your band t-shirt and wear on performance day.


Personal luggage:  You may bring 1 suitcase, 1 hanging bag, and 1 carryon bag on the bus, all clearly marked with your name.  It would be a good idea to put some personal items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, makeup, etc. in your carryon since we will be sleeping on the bus.  Also, you might want to bring a change of clothes.  The luggage will not be unloaded until we check into the hotel, which will be Friday around 9:00 p.m.  You may also bring a small pillow and blanket for sleeping on the bus.  It usually gets cold in the evenings on the bus.  The weather in Florida should be warm and humid, so dress comfortable, the school dress code is still in effect throughout the trip. 


Miscellaneous Items:  You may bring an electronic device with headphones but don’t leave them lying around for someone to steal.  Do not leave valuables in your hotel room.  We will check out of the hotel on Monday morning so be sure to pack what you need in your carryon bag for the trip home.  All school polices will be in effect for the duration of the trip.  You know how I expect you to act, so don’t ruin a great trip for yourself and everyone else because of carelessness and stupidity.
