Rehearsals and Performances:

  • Rehearsal on Saturday, August 19 will be from 12pm – 7pm, after the Color Run.
  • Our school district has a program that provides a "Supper" to any students who request it for any after school activities. Supper consists of a protein, grain, veggie and fruit option.
    • Contact Sue Felli at suzannefelli or 317-694-7674 to sign your student up for this program. Please list which days your student will need a supper.
    • Students will pick up their supper directly from the cafeteria at their home school. LN students; take your supper to the band hall to await the shuttle – do not eat in the cafeteria! (DO NOT leave trash!)

Shuttle Busses & Pick Up:

  • The after school shuttle bus for LN students will leave from LN door 16 at 4pm for all Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday rehearsals. Parents will always pick up from LC at the end of rehearsal – there is no return shuttle to LN. (If rehearsals are at LN, the shuttle will run from LC to LN, leaving from door 11, and you will pick up from LN.)
  • On Thursdays, students have the option of riding their regular bus home and meeting back at LC at 6:15PM in time for the 6:30PM rehearsal, or taking the shuttle directly to LC and waiting in a supervised room for the rehearsal. Meals are the student’s responsibility.
  • Please keep our students safe! When picking up your students after rehearsals, please pull into a designated parking spot before leaving your vehicle. Do not park in the traffic lanes or block traffic.
  • LN Color Guard members are encouraged to be dropped off at LC for the G1 guard class. There is a shuttle bus to LN after class. Alternately, they can ride the normal shuttle from LN to LC which leaves from LN door 4 at the start of the school day.
  • Information about evening Activity Busses will come soon.
