Hey Everyone... this is where you will find everything about Brandon Jazz.  We have traditionally done this trip every year with all of our Jazz Bands.

This year's dates are March 18-20, 2020.  There will be lots more information to come, but if you would like to get a feel for the trip, last year's info is below.

Here is the info letter being sent home during class time this week - Brandon Jazz Information Letter

________________________________________________________________________________

EVERYTHING BELOW IS FROM LAST YEAR'S EVENT:


We are now just days away from our departure to the Brandon Jazz Festival and there are a few last minute things to put into place before the wheels on our bus go round and round.

1.    Permission forms and medical forms have been distributed to the students.  Please fill out CELL NUMBERS AND NIGHT-TIME CONTACT INFO PLEASE.

2.    PLEASE DO NOT STRIKE THE MEDICAL FORM OUT AND WRITE “ON FILE.”  THAT WILL NOT HELP US IN AN EMERGENT SITUATION AT 3:00AM.

3.    Please take a moment and let us know under “Other Health/ Medical/ Dietary concerns” if your son or daughter is: allergic to any foods, lactose intolerant, vegetarian…etc. This helps us make their tour that much more enjoyable.

4.    If you are coming out to pick- up your son or daughter at the festival, you cannot take them without Mr. Edwards or Ms. Russell verifying the departure with you in person at the festival site.

5.     On behalf of Ms. Russell and myself, we want you to know that this will truly be a wonderful adventure for your son or daughter, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me at the number above or email either of us: gedwards@sjsd.net or arussell@sjsd.net
