*Symphonic Band parents, I have spoken with our director of transportation, Montrell McClendon and we have worked it out for your child to be able to ride the bus home after LGPE if needed. We will be arriving back to the school just after dismissal. If you are able to pick up your child that would help, but since it is so close to dismissal we are trying to help as much as we can. The buses will pick up the HS students, then pick up the JrHS students, if needed return to the HS to pick up our band students. Please email Mr. Nelson (zachary.nelson@carrolltoncityschools.net) and tell him your child’s name and bus number if you would like for the bus to pick up your child from the HS after LGPE. We need to communicate this information to Mr. McClendon so that we can prepare the logistics to make this happen.
