Performances start promptly at 8:00am and run through the 10:00am hour. Hopefully, all scores will be in our hands by 11:00ish and we would be home around noon to 1:00pm. If there is any change, we will send out a Remind Text.
Parents may check out their children if they have finished with their performances if they wish. They must check out in person with their child face to face with a director. Mr. Christy will be on hand to do so. Please see that you have his cell number.
There will be concessions at the contest site. I would urge the students to have enough money for snacks and lunch as this can be a long day of waiting.
