We interrupt this week…

Bus Chaperones still needed

We are still in need of bus chaperones. Please email Barbara Dothard (barbara.dothard@carrolltoncityschools.net) if you can chaperone for us on Friday. Chaperones need to be at the school by 4:00PM. We will be departing for Dalton at 4:15PM.

Away Game Check Out Procedures

Here is a reminder of our check out procedures as outlined in the Band Handbook


Students may check out from trips away from the CHS campus, but will be released to their parents or legal guardians ONLY. We take the safety of your children very seriously and will not make exceptions to this rule. Despite any inconveniences, this is the safest way and the only way we will allow a student to check out. Please submit your request to check out to Ms. Dothard at least 1 day in advance of the trip from which you will be checking out. Before departing with your parent/guardian a director then must physically say goodbye to the student with his/her legal guardian. The student is still responsible for putting up his/her uniform and equipment.

The check out form can be found on our “forms” page, and it is linked here for your convenience. It is due by 5:00pm tomorrow if you’d like to check your child out from the Dalton game or JSU Band Day.

Keep Band Room Road Clear

Please do not park in the circle drive in front of the band room at any time as it needs to be clear for buses and emergency vehicles. Additionally, after the game, the buses, 18-wheeler, and other band trailers need to access the parking lot to allow our students to unload before they are dismissed. Updated ETA’s will be sent out via Remind

Remind: We use Remind.com to send just in time reminders and updates to parents about ETAs and the rare last minute changes that may happen due to unpredicted circumstances. To join these reminders please text the appropriate code to 81010 to subscribe to these text message announcements:

If you arrive before our buses/equipment vehicles please park in the visitor’s parking lot and keep our entrance clear until all of our vehicles have made it to the band room. At that time you are welcome to use the drive through in front of the band room to pick up your child. Thank you SO SO much for your help with this!
