Viper Band Family,

CONGRATULATIONS again on your advancement to the UIL Texas State Marching Contest!  I’ve spent the day preparing for next weekend and it should be a great trip for all involved!

The Announcement Sheet for this week is attached.  More importantly, please review the San Antonio Trip Packet.  I have created separate attachments for the “Overnight Trip Rules Signature Page” and the “Prescription Medication Form.”  Please carefully observe the following deadlines this week:

  • Tuesday, October 30 – ALL “Overnight Trip Rules Signature Pages” due for any student travelling this weekend
  • Wednesday, October 31 – Final Itinerary released (minor updates to schedule, room lists included, bus lists included, chaperone assignments included)
  • Saturday, November 3 – 10am Medication Drop Off for Prescription Medication Only (see the trip packet)

Parents – I have also attached the Alamodome “Clear Bag Policy.”  They are very strict with the attached rules and will turn you away if you are trying to carry in the wrong type of bag.

The students have worked SO HARD this season, and I’m looking forward to ending our season strong.  It should be a great experience for all of the performing members!
