Please share this information with your student so they know what to expect. See www.goband.org
and the attachments to this email to determine what to pack, and check the 10-day forecast for San Francisco. The itinerary is attached, and you can see that it is packed. Comfort is key!
What happens on Monday, March 6?
ALL luggage must be brought to school at 6:00 PM for inspection. (This does not include backpacks–those are a personal item and do not require inspection per LPS guidelines. Bring those Saturday.) Follow the signs–you will either enter through the band room or choir room.
Students will pick up their orange travel t-shirts when they bring their luggage for inspection. Those that ordered blue or white trip t-shirts should plan on picking those up at this time, as well.
After the luggage is inspected: Carry-on luggage will be securely stored at school until Saturday’s departure. (Those meeting at East to ride the bus for Omaha flights will get their luggage before loading the bus. The luggage for the Lincoln flight will be delivered to the airport.) Truck luggage will be loaded immediately after inspection.
Instruments will be loaded on the truck. Flute and clarinet players can choose to pack their instruments in their luggage, but we will have tubs on the truck to contain these smaller instruments. Be sure you have everything you need for your instrument–extra reeds, valve oil, etc.
The truck will be leaving Lincoln on Tuesday afternoon.
