Transportation

Band and orchestra students should ride their neighborhood middle school bus. Band programs are typically held at the middle school, and orchestra will be either at the middle school or at an elementary school. The buses will also drop orchestra students at their elementary orchestra site, if it's not held at the middle school. Music teachers will meet the students and direct them to their class areas. After class, students will be returned to their individual elementary schools by shuttle bus. 

Please note that students can attend any elementary band or orchestra site outside of their service area IF they are willing to provide transportation to and from their selected site.
