If your child needs to take any medication while we are on the trip, (between 2 p.m. and around midnight) you must fill out a medical form for each prescription. The medical form can be found under the forms tab. A nurse who is also a band parent, Lisa Carter, will be with the students on the trip to Hoover. She will be in the bandroom this Tuesday to collect forms with medication if your child needs it. Medication must be turned in by the parent between 5:00 and 6:00p.m. on Tuesday on Oct.16th. If you will be at the competition and can hand medication to your child, you do not need to fill out any forms.
