This year will mark the inaugural MPLT Band Camp. For everyone involved, some things will remain the same, while some things will change to suit the needs of the Band. One thing that will not change is the commitment to excellence embodied by the directors, staff and students from both schools.

Freshman orientation, schedule/book pickup at both schools as well as ongoing renovations at LC, will create unique challenges. Systems have been put in place to help ensure that the check-in process and the entire week of Band Camp are productive and enjoyable. There is a large amount of information to cover so please read carefully.

Check-in Times: Check-in will be staggered by grade order to give Rookie member students and families more time to complete the check-in process and be sure they get all of their questions answered.

Section Leaders and Drum Majors will be asked to report early
so that they are available to assist staff as needed before the start of camp.

Please adhere to the check-in times as this will help to eliminate congestion.

Band Camp report times are staggered.*

♦ 1:30 PM - Section Leaders and Drum Majors

♦ 2:00 PM - Freshmen/8th Grade/Transfer Students

♦ 2:30 PM - Sophomore

♦ 3:00 PM - Junior

♦ 3:30 PM - Senior

*Siblings may report at the same check-in time. If you are a parent volunteer assigned to work at Band Camp registration/check-in, please report by 1:00 pm to complete your student's check-in process.

Check-in: Students and parents will be greeted at check-in tables in the Hall of Fame (door #11). Parents will receive their orange checklist and proceed through the check-in process, at each table checklist will be approved. You may then proceed to the next table.

Financial Contract and Payments: All families should have completed the required financial contract and payment plan paperwork by this time. If you have not done so, you may contact the LN or LC Performing Arts office this week, you will also have the opportunity to do so at check-in immediately after arrival.

Required Forms: At the Mandatory Parent Meeting in June all members received a packet of forms. Many of you turned in these forms that evening. If you have not yet turned in these forms or have lost them you may download and print them using the links below. If you have these forms filled out ahead of time it will make you and your student's check-in much faster. If you have already filled out and turned in these forms there will be a record of that in the Performing Arts office.

2014 Medical Release and Certificate of Consent Form - student and parent signature required

2014 Student Performer Contract - student and parent signature required - need form

2014 Information Verification Form - student and parent contact info

Medical: Parents of students requiring prescription medication will need to provide dosage, frequency and a supply of the medication needed each day from 6:45am - 9:30pm. Students who have non-medication related requirements should also report to the Medical table. The medical staff must be aware of all situations each student faces in order to provide the highest level of care and support during camp.

Lawrence North Families Only - Freshman Orientation and Upperclassmen Book/Schedule Pickup: All LN parents will need to complete a form acknowledging that your student will be leaving and returning to the LC campus via MSDLT shuttle bus. Please download and review a copy of the LN student departure and arrival schedule. Students who drive to camp each day will not be permitted to drive themselves and parents will not be required to drive their students from LC to LN and back.
Please look at this in terms of a "field trip" permission and transportation issue. The goal is that all students are accounted for every moment of the day during Band Camp.
