PARENTS TAKING YOU FROM GAMES:

We travel to and from games together. We are a team. If your parent needs to take you Mrs. Denney MUST have prior notice that they are taking you directly from the stadium (that means before the day of), AND your parent must sign you out with a director. Please do not go to a director and say “I’m leaving with my mom/dad” or “my mom said it was okay if I left with my friend’s parents” and then we never see your mom or hear from your parents and you disappear and we have no idea if you’re really with them. That is not okay. That makes Denney very unhappy because she can not ensure that you are safe and with someone you should be leaving with.  

You are not allowed to go with other parents, girlfriends/boyfriends/friends. If there is a special circumstance let Denney know--again, BEFORE the day of. Communication is key. She is responsible for all 210 of you and creating bus lists and letting other directors know who should and should not be on their bus is critical in ensuring that we leave no one behind. Family means nobody gets left behind. We are a band family.

~Mrs. Denney
