Chaperones Needed

I am working on chaperone assignments for the upcoming competitions.  If you would like to be a chaperone for the following competitions, please let me know ASAP.  The first people to respond to me via email at: asommerlex@gmail.com will get these spots.

If you are planning to chaperone any school event, you MUST complete the volunteer background check through Fayette County Public Schools.  Here is the link to check your current application status.  Please make sure you are approved for this school year. If not, please submit a request to update your status.  If you have any questions or problems with this link, please reach out to me and I will assist.

Day Competitions:

  •          September 14             Lafayette Band Invitational                                         This will be an all-day event
  •          September 22             BOA Regional Championship (Louisville, KY)           This will be an all-day event

Lafayette and Louisville competitions are both an ALL DAY commitment. Chaperones will meet at HC in the band hallway about 30 minutes before the band members board the buses to leave for competitions. Chaperones will ride the buses with the students and will stay will the students the entire time that we are at the competition site. Chaperones do NOT have to buy a ticket for the competitions and they can eat with the band.

  • We will leave early Friday morning (Oct 4)  and return Sunday (Oct 6).  We will spend Friday evening in a gymnasium and Saturday evening in hotel.

  • We will leave Friday morning (Oct 25) and return late Saturday evening/Sunday morning (around 2am).  We will spend Friday evening in a gymnasium (you can bring a sleeping bag, air mattress, etc).

We need both male and female chaperones for the overnight competitions.  There will be access to showers, etc. for everyone. Chaperones will ride the buses with the students and will stay overnight in the gymnasium with the students. Chaperones do NOT have to buy a ticket for the competition and they can eat all meals with the band.
