The UHS Band will travel to Orlando, Florida March 19-23, 2020. We will visit Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney's Magic Kingdom, and Universal Orlando. The band will march in the parade in Disney's Magic Kingdom on Saturday, March 21 at 9:45 am.
The Orlando Trip is a wonderful opportunity and we hope all band students can attend with us. In addition to offering fundraising opportunities, the UHS Band Boosters are paying $160 (1/6) of the cost of every student's and chaperone's trip.
Student accounts must be current (or be on a payment plan) in order to participate in the Orlando Trip.
Priority in the selection of chaperones is given to parents who have volunteered the most in the past.
Additional information is listed below. Please check back as this information will be updated as we get closer to the trip:
March 19-23, 2020
~$960 per person, minus $160 per person covered by band boosters ($800 total)
We will collect five payments of $160 on the following dates:
Payments may be made by checks payable to UHS Band, or students may have payments taken from their student accounts. Additionally, payments may be made by credit card at every home UHS football game, and Boosters Treasurer Matt Turner plans to set up additional dates TBA. Mr. Turner is also willing to meet with parents to run credit cards. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW: Parents may fill out the Credit Card Authorization for students to place in the black box. (Fees apply.)
