Please log in to your My Gateway account and pay this final balance online or mail a check to: Gateway Music Festivals & Tours, PO Box 1165, Monticello, MN 55362.

* All Attending Adults are required to complete an OSBI background check. The cost is $20 made payable to the Southmoore Band. Click HERE for a link to the background check form (hard copies are also available in the bandroom). Please fill out the “Subject Information” only and return to Mr. Mewhorter. Band parents who have already submitted their form this year for fall duties do NOT have to fill out another form. Forms and $$$ are due April 1.

* Please sign up for Orlando trip text updates.Simply text @shsfl18 to 81010.

* The trip information meeting will be held April 26 @ 6:00 PM. Parents of attending students need to attend.

* There is now an Orlando page on the member’s website.

* Per the Disney folks, the finalized itinerary will be available about 4-6 weeks prior to departure. At that time, we hope to have access to park passes so you can schedule fast passes, etc.

*Take a quick look at your Charms account. Orlando trip participants are to owe NO past band fees or your trip will be cancelled on April 1.

* ALL ATTENDING ADULTS ARE CHAPERONES. You are a chaperone even if you checked “adult passenger” when signing up for the trip. It is extremely helpful to have all our adults serve as more sets of “eyes” on the trip which helps keeps our students safe. Additionally, we have MANY attending adults, therefore with everyone’s cooperation this will be no big deal.

* …to that end - The adult chaperone meeting occurs immediately after the trip info meeting on April 26. We need you there; please note that lack of attendance will not result in loss of duties but it may just earn you that 3:00 AM hotel shift since you will not be there to sign up.
